The Metz student residence is made up of four buildings arranged around a patio, that serves as a meeting place for the students. The guiding principle behind the facade is a system that is simple to put in place, visually rich and economical to construct. Scales of tinted concrete have a different colour surface depending on the building. The crenellated envelope thus reveals a variety of vibrant shades creating a permanent sense of movement.
