Winner of Réinventer Paris 2 "The underside of the city"
The Oasis project will symbolise the renewal of the Montparnasse district. Located above one of the busiest train stations in France, the Atlantic Garden and the Liberation Museum are confidential places, embedded in a complex urban fabric (garden on a slab covering the railway line and the station, housing blocks built by Jean Dubuisson, office towers).
Designed by the practices CALQ and Atelier Georges, Oasis aims to transform them into the living heart of this cosmopolitan district where travellers, local residents, tourists and new residents will mingle in a convivial atmosphere.
The aim is to open up this atypical place to as many people as possible, while preserving its qualities : it is a green haven of peace in the heart of the dense city.
Oasis offers :
- a place to stay
- a third place open to globetrotters, families, students, young workers and people in rehabilitation.
The project is based on the original morphology of the building to define its image, reflecting the new uses of the place. The extension respects the general volumetry of the postmodern building imagined by Willerval.
The volumes created express their material and constructive reality : wood is used in the cladding and structure, to meet the constraints of the superimposed infrastructure.
