The question of suburban housing is addressed here through a search not for form, but rather for appropriate scale. In the style of the buildings of the village of Corsier that abut one another, this new residential quarter looks like an assemblage of units. The ground plan extends the arrangement of the paneled built-up masses. A large open space, the meadow, functions as a link with the existing village. It is bordered by a water-meadow at its lowest point.
