La Barquière位于法国马赛第九区，是一栋拥有62间单元房的公寓楼。周围的邻里关系为该公寓提供了一个独特的生活环境。公寓的住户们希望建筑可以还原18世纪风采，现存的老旧建筑以及所处的木林环境，一定程度上限制了该公寓发展成为复杂多样的建筑形态。然而它依然近乎完美的实现了所有居住者的愿景。La Barquière原是一栋18世纪风格建筑，它位于两条林荫大道的交叉口附近的私人土地上，周围环绕枝繁叶茂的树林。该建筑与马赛“混乱又迷人”的城市景观形成强烈对比。周围各种大中型别墅，小型建筑物，社会住房，体育活动场，商业园区等并行存在。身处其中的该公寓带来更加无机的城市氛围。尽管只有登上建筑的最高层才能眺望远处的海岸线，该建筑依然用其独特的形态，为我们描绘了地中海风情。
La Barquière is a 62-housing project located in the 9th district of Marseille (France). The urban neighbourhood offers to the project a unique setting. Drawn in keeping with its context, this project respects all the family owner wishes. The owner wanted to keep the old building dated from the 18th century. The existing old building and the wooded environment proximity forced the project to become part of a complex height. It is here that La Barquière has recently come into being on the corner of the eponymous avenue and Avenue de la Soude, following the division of a privately owned piece of land planted with pretty trees, the site of an 18th century Provençal house. The operation is set against a contrasted urban fabric—so characteristic of the “charming mayhem” of Marseille, where large neo-Provençal villas, individual houses, small buildings, blocks of social housing, a stadium and a modest business park sit happily side-by-side. Becoming more abundant here, the vegetation confers on the building a greater sense of urbanity whilst highlighting its mineral character. The presence of the “big blue” Mediterranean Sea can still be felt even if the littoral zone is only discernible from the building’s uppermost floors.

The building, which sits on the northernmost part of the land, gets broader as it curves to the east (increasing from 16 metres to 20 metres in width). Maximum distance from the house is thereby ensured and the view from the new apartments, which face in two—or even opposite—directions wherever possible, is preserved. As befitting both the site and the neighbourhood, the architecture chosen by Jean-Baptiste Pietri is solar and “bipolar”—his inspiration taken more from Streamline-Miami than Art Deco-Riviera—combining and confronting the horizontal and the vertical. Just as impeccably white, and acting as two magnetic sides of the same coin, the balustrades of its continuous balconies undulate along the southwest facade whilst to the northeast resolutely orthonormal ornamental features highlight the enamelled ceramic and loggias. With its framed openings, double tubular aluminum balusters and its skin faceted to size, the frontage of the newest building establishes an unexpected dialogue with the Phocaean city and its ethereal light. Facing the garden, its sinuous “flip” side—sculpted by the shadows cast by the Midi sun—caresses and soothes the Proven.al “jungle” and the landscape of the Calanques massif.

与大多数地中海港口城市一样，马赛具有强大的包容性和复合型，丰富多样的生态环境，无所不在的感染着人这个城市中的生活。而这种纯白色的，无机的，更加贴近当代城市感的建筑形态，已从法国南部然蔓延到Calanques。该地块的所有者希望保留其南面（2,203 平方米）原始繁茂的自然环境，并将这处自然风貌沿建筑西侧排开，进而融入居住者的日常生活之中。而北部3912平方米的场地中，Constructa和Eiffage Immobilier联合开发了这栋拥有62个居住单元的公寓项目。该公寓为南北朝向，拥有两个楼梯间，建筑共6层，包含两个带阁楼的平面层，以及两层地下停车场（共77车位）。场地临近两个林荫大道的交叉口处，及不远处由政府筹建的滑板公园。建筑以其独特的形态在闹市之中为居住者觅得一处相对私密的生活空间。对建筑面积的合理把控（建筑基底面积991平方米）也保证了场地内的原始绿植不被破坏。
Like many large Mediterranean port cities, Marseille is a cosmopolitan and composite city whose generous and heterogeneous nature is all too often masked under the images on picture postcards. Vast white, mineral city in the south-east of France, more work-oriented than the seaside, it extends to the Calanques. The owners of the original plot wished to keep its southernmost section (2,203 m²) reminiscent of a luxuriant urban oasis and which runs along the western edge of the house where they live with their family. On the remaining 3,912 m² on the northernmost limit of the plot, Constructa and Eiffage Immobilier developed a program of 62 residential units for first-time buyers. Oriented north—south and served by two stairwells, the units are grouped into one six-floor building including two “attic” levels and with two underground parking levels (77 parking spaces) conferring upon residents a sense of relative privacy in relation to the small stadium with its skate park, built by the municipality to the north where the two avenues intersect. Its minimal footprint (991 m²) guarantees the preservation of the plant life.

The camber, like a west-facing prow, and the fifth-floor attic level endow a soaring and dynamic quality. Since the original entrance onto the plot is now to be shared with the existing house, traffic flow generated by the new building is directed immediately to the left towards the ramp leading down to the two underground levels. Despite running as closely as is possible to the perimeter wall erected on the northeast of the plot, the new construction leaves enough space for a beautiful driveway—lined with plants and greenery—leading up to the building’s two halls and serving as access lane for the fire department.

Enhancing privacy between neighbours, the folded sheet metal balcony separation in 50 cm thick casing subtly “absorbs” descending rainwater, stopping at a height of 180 cm to avoid “caging in” the balconies. While the floor plans of the apartments—once rationalised and optimised—are organised identically on each floor, only the position of the bay windows is different to the north and east in order to liven up their general modenature and in some cases to address the lack of privacy between neighbours. The layout of respective apartments is such that unnecessary circulation areas have been carefully limited in order to maximise the surface of the living areas, despite the standardisation operating in the real estate market. With the exception of a one-bedroom apartment on the ground floor, each apartment boasts a balcony, a loggia or a continuous terrace, depending on its size and orientation.

Lit by natural daylight, the two entrance lobbies to the apartments are preceded by a benignant covered “courtyard”—also tiled—its glass doors conducive to security. Intentionally white like the circulation areas in the upper floors right down to the hardware, fittings and electrical fixtures, their floor is coated with a poured, polished concrete Terrazzo covering flecked with marble chips and blue speckles. Only the doors onto the landings and the signage—specifically designed by the agency for each project—feature black (full or half tone). Acoustic comfort in the corridors serving the apartments is ensured by the thick carpet laid on the floor and suspended, partially acoustical, ceilings. All the distribution ducts and waste fluid evacuation pipes are meticulously integrated into the partition walls. Similarly, all the thresholds of the French windows leading out onto the balconies or loggias are flat, the outer frames of the windows and roller blind rails (in white PVC) are invisible, hidden behind the thermo-lacquered folded aluminum frame running around the windows (with integrated sills and flashing).
