Eighty-eight housing units and two-level car park, the Eleven development programme integrates into the former rail freight yards within the new Saint-Roch urban regeneration operation undertaken by Paul Chemetov and Emmanuel Nebout with EcoCité certification.

Two facades designed in harmony with the urban fabric

The facades respond to the urban fabric:

North: opposite the Montpellier city centre, an urban and rectilinear character.

South: opposite Parc Henri Dumont, facade is composed of continuous, undulating balconies

The strong character building is enhanced by a precise selection of construction materials:

- White concrete provides clarity and precision: at basement level (smooth and bush-hammered) and north facade overlooking the street. The choice of white concrete gives unity to components, brightness on the north elevation.

- Bush hammered concrete with champagne metal finish recalls the warmth of Montpellier stone, to form a backdrop.

- Steel at the level of the continuous balconies, punctuated with perforated white railings on the south elevation overlooking the park. A double skin also reflects light in elevation.

Nature invites itself into the voids on site.

The landscape stretches infinitely, beyond city limits and creates ecological continuities between open public and enclosed private space.

The garden located in the site centre has the form of an undulating hillside with a succession of mounds from which groves emerge. Plant density reinforces the feeling of interiority and intimacy within the site.
