Scattered Window Structures
Hollande by FRES Architects is a Social Housing Building in France

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Sep 21, 12

Hollande by FRES Architects is a social housing project that elevates what is often a monotonous living situation into something dynamic and aesthetically pleasing. The formidable black brick exterior is scattered with windows in what appears to be a haphazard way. This design feature brightens up the entire exterior, turning what could have been a somber design into something fun and cheerful.

Located in Béthune, France, Hollande by FRES Architects is surrounded by an area with a look dating back to the ‘70s. This building system updates the area while providing a haven for those who live within. With warm wood accents, the social housing provides a contemporary presence that could inspire the rest of the neighborhood to undergo a facelift.
