Residential Architecture:  Housing in La Courrouze by Philippe Gazeau: “..Balconies of these two apartment blocks in northwest France by architect Philippe Gazeau protrude like a set of open drawers..Located on a former military site in La Courrouze, Rennes, the residential development features two towers and two rows of houses surrounding a patch of grass with a car park underneath..Elevations of each building are coated with a surface layer of concrete or clad with sheets of ribbed metal, giving them a uniformly grey appearance..Balconies are positioned on the south-facing elevations of the two high-rises and feature brightly painted inside walls and coloured glass balustrades..The completed project provides a total of 76 new homes for the La Courrouze development zone, a growing neighbourhood that covers an area of 140 hectares..”  Interesting form, colourful character..
