Allotment "Am Bongert" in Clemency

A project of the Mulhern & Steil era, and the only subdivision that we have achieved so far, despite its success at the time.

The Commune of Clemency instructed us to study a residential complex with a social character to provide housing for the young people of the Commune who could no longer afford the prices charged for building land.

The topography of the land made it difficult to create a subdivision. Access to the existing networks was very narrow and it was very difficult to build on the central part without carrying out major excavations.

The Commune agreed to follow our proposal and reduced the size of the building land to 2 ares per house, which was unthinkable at the time, and to arrange the central part into a park with a children's playground.

The fact that the Commune, as a client, allowed us to realize a subdivision deemed explorational, and that no private developer would have allowed us to sacrifice so much salable land to the collective, was remarkable. 

We designed the single apartment building at an important location to give a certain grandeur to the entire development. There is also a location for a public building if one day there is a need for one.
