The riverside ecodistrict developed on Saint Denis Island for the 2024 Olympic Games will temporarily accommodate 2500 athletes, before becoming a genuine, mixed-use neighbourhood. The architects have established shared rules in order to ensure a harmonious building frontage along the Quai du Châtelier: a common facade language, continuity of the two-storey base, balconies, identical materials for railings, joinery and blinds. Within the PA block, Hardel Le Bihan Architectes is designing a building to house 234 athletes, reversible into offices for the ‘legacy’ phase. The housing units present largely glazed, openable facades, outdoor areas on all levels, and open floor plans suitable for office use. On the fifth floor, a recess marks an intermediary level and frees up a future planted terrace with 50cm of soil.
