My project focuses on the concept of “Le réemploi dans l’architecture d’intérieur: vers des aménagements réversibles” (reuse in interior architecture: towards reversible designs) and is implemented in a student housing complex consisting of three buildings.

The main building features a clear structural grid that determined the dimensions of the studios, while the common areas are primarily located in the first building. Salvaged materials such as tiles and wood floors were utilized in the construction process.

There are five different types of studios available, which vary in height and dimensions. The design emphasizes versatility and creative use of space, while utilizing standard dimensions for the interior elements. The modular interior design is perfect for students whose needs will inevitably change. Each piece of furniture is a separate entity that can be easily moved or replaced elsewhere.

To promote the idea of reuse and reversibility, the furniture design, including closets and bookshelves, features a structure that allows for easy changes to the wood panels. Overall, the goal of the project is to create an adaptable, sustainable living space that accommodates the evolving needs of its occupants.
