Reservoir tower – Le Havre, France
The reservoir tower is a housing building dating from the 60s whose particularity is to possess a water tank on its roof, and a vast amount of collective spaces on the lower floors. It is partially abandoned today. This restructuration projects aims to reactivate its initial role as social activator. It consists in the renovation of existing apartments, the renewal of surrounding urban spaces, and the reprogramming of collective spaces around the theme of water. The proposal lies mainly in a thin additional tower positioned on the northern façade in order to renew the identity of the existing building and multiply housing typologies.
