The project claims measured density as a way of achieving quality of living: a balance between intensity, metropolitan desirability, and proximity to the territory. The service sector goes hand-in-hand here with the residential and open characteristics of the neighbourhood. The cultural, artistic, creative and sportive ambitions carry the identity and attractiveness of the project. TVK proposes to develop it in ‘seasons’, through scenarisation, a long-term, dynamic process, capable of integrating the evolution of our society, and above all to reach shared collective goals. The scheme offered relies on the diversity of the typologies proposed in the individual programmes: from artisanal activity to the tower housing the office, from the house over the gymnasium to the panoramic flat for the accommodation, from the proximity services to Mix Pleyel, a multi-purpose performance hall a multi-purpose performance hall opened on the railway.
