Student Housing in Esbjerg – 19 Jun 2012
CEBRA, in cooperation with engineers LB Consult, has won the competition for 48 new student housings in Denmark’s 5th largest city Esbjerg. The proposal consists of 26,910 sqft apartments spread across ten floors and outdoor areas with terraces and activity zones. The project is commissioned by the housing association Ungdomsbo. The building contains two basic functions: apartments – both for students and for young elitist sports practitioners – and common areas.

70°SUD Boulogne-Billancourt – 27 Mar 2012
This project, for which the competition occurred in 2008, is the result of a complex transformation process in the city along with a precise economic context. Located on the former site of the Renault factories in Boulogne-Billancourt, the concerned project is part of the Trapèze Ouest, one of the sector of the operation Ile Seguin-Rives de Seine, amongst the most important emerging centres in Ile-de-France.

Business space and the entrance to the retirement home are found on the ground floor, followed by five floors containing the main section of the retirement home, while the top four floors contain privately owned homes. The basement contains parking lots for the residents as well as supplementary annexes of the retirement home: its kitchen, maintenance and storage rooms.

Parisian Social Housing – 6 Jan 2012
The apartments are laid out on a grid of 3m20 and offer a multitude of types from studios to large 4/5 room apartments. One of the major topics has been the possible evolution by combining the apartments and adapting them to new situations over generations. The plan, composed of modules allows to reorganize and to resize the apartments.
