Housing (4) Torpedo houses

Torpedo

The Torpedo houses (Saint Denis, northern Paris) are a set of 18 individual homes on a 2.300 sq m site, in cross-shaped and twin groups. The vertical displacement of a part of the cross units allows a configuration with a carport under some dwellings and private green spaces for all homes. The homes can be identified as different by the façade material, but some elements as the windows and frames use a uniform design.

The project by Emannuelle Marin+David Trottin/ Peripheriques Architectes (http://www.peripheriques-architectes.com/villa-torpedo), handed out in 2005, is part of a generation of French urban renovation projects in the last years
