The primary road leading into Marche-en-Famenne splits the village in two. The proposed development of a section of this boulevard is an unmissable opportunity to begin to reconnect the two halves.
Existing boulevard divides
Marche-en-Famenne in two
New routes connect the church, city hall and
two halves of the village
Maison Pergola proposes a row of dwellings upon a public plinth in a form reflecting the local housing typology. This new development is carefully fit within the contours of the narrow plot and forms a new border for the historic city center.
Strategic openings in the plinth form two small squares; one opposite the town hall and a second overlooking a garden. Two passages form a new connection between the boulevard and the main square in front of the historic church.
