MVRDV - Ilot de l’Octroi

Ilot de l’Octroi

Ilot de l’Octroi is a new 8,200m2 residential development part of the Rennes 2030 urban project. The multi-level curved façades of these residencies take inspiration from rock formations – playing with geometry, colours and materials. The project will contribute to transforming Octroi into a green union between existing paths along the Ille and Vilaine rivers, and the centre of the city.

“The project is intentionally very open. Open to the Vilaine, open to the city and open towards nature,” explains Nathalie de Vries, co-founder of MVRDV. “As part of the expansion of Rennes, we designed a dense urban area that offers more public access to nature, private greens and fantastic views. Densification only works when it comes with added qualities, and that is our ambition for these inhabitants.”
