Eric Lapierre. Student's dormitory. Paris

The student’s dormitory is built above an existing parking for parisian public buses. It houses 350 students in individual flats. The site is close to Cité Universitaire, where Le Corbusier built Swiss and Brasilian Pavilions, and faces the Willem Dudok’s 1929 Dutch Pavilion. The building is made of steel and totally prefabricated. It is a linear structure filled with individual flats from which we have removed some to create voids dedicated to collective life and movement. On the street side, void creates a huge piranesian diagonal which connects entrance on the ground floor to main collective space on the roof, through stairs and funicular.

On the private side void is shaped as series of terraces for collective uses. As collective spaces are dedicated to movement and connected to urban energy of the close boulevard, flats are dedicated to concentration and quietness: 25 per cent of them have double exposure through a gangway. All of them look to open space through a glazed facade and a private balcony: the Parc Montsouris to the east, and the parisian roof landscape to the west.
