Bois Perrin block in Rennes
h2o architectes won the public competition for the urban planning of Bois Perrin city block in Rennes. The new development area includes the transformation of the old Motte-au-Duc hospital designed by architect Jean-Marie Laloy in 1921. The site, located in the east of the city, is situated at the meeting point between two forms of urban development, large housing complexes and suburban housing. The new area provides a mixed program of housing, tertiary activity spaces, shops and a nursery. The area is set to become an open urban fabric based on the existing park which reconfigured will form the base of a walk through neighborhood. The project is carried out for the City of Rennes and developed with OLM landscape architect, OGI civil engineering , id + building engineer.
