22 rue Chazelles, Paris, France
We are 5 French architects and an association : Antoine, Estelle, Josephine, Juliette, Soraya and the Intervalle association. We met each other from November 2018 to March 2019, thanks to conference about the Impact of Schools in Africa held in Paris where Intervalle was presenting a Kindergarden project in Morocco. We decided to support and continu there work in the village of Aguerd (High Atlas Mountains, Morocco).

Hénaia is a collaborative project between french-moroccan architects, inhabitants and associations in order to create a shared area.

Type of project
  • Site-specific cases

The project is defined by a set of terrain levels, generated by different platforms, each hosting a particular use, having a different texture/color, with beveled shapes imitating the natural terrain, creating a playful course.
A main wall was drawn, separating the car/animal traffic from the rest of the project. The program is spread on both side of this main "street".

This process creates 3 sites : the central square and the garden, the playground and the basket court. They evoke the cultivated terraces, reproducing the region's vernacular typology.
We mostly used materials present on the site, gathering the rocks will digging the terrain, or on the mountain's side. Using local materials proved to be in agreement with a very short temporality to build the project : 2 weeks.
Building this project was made possible thanks to the villagers who shared local constructive knowledge with us : dry stones walls, clay morter stone wall, and slate covering.
