Poggi Architecture and More Architecture, two studios based out of Bordeaux, France, teamed up to build a set of public housing units called 'White Clouds.' The project consists of three units, each of which have a striking volumetric design and white aesthetic that inspires their name.

White Clouds comprises 1,886 square meters, which translates to 30 separate apartments. The most notable aspect of the units are the caged balconies that extend from it. The balconies are cantilevered from the outer walls of the buildings at seemingly random places, lending the houses an air of play. The size and shape of each individual balcony corresponds to the needs of the apartment that is connected to it.

Poggi Architecture and More Architecture's project sits in the small town of Saintes, which is in western France.
