This new residential area wants to be part of a sustainable approach. We have here a social approach of the sustainable development.

It is from the principle of the city-forest that the streets will carry this new identity. These streets, which abandon the principle of parallel limits, are accompanied by a strong wooded density. They are installed on rainwater infiltration spaces. Car parking is grouped together to free the street from cars and give space to pedestrians. The streets do not have a continuous linear axis, but all have a break. This principle breaks the linearity of the streets and sends the visual leakage points back to the vegetation fringe. Each parcel has a direct access dedicated to the vehicle from the "Classic" service road. The sidewalks are located against the parcels outside the central block, which makes pedestrian movements safer.
