The Indépendance project is located in a very mixed-use neighbourhood (residental, commercial, and infrastructural areas). A tramline and several buses stop just in front the building, and the metro (and train) stations Gare de l’Ouest and Comte de Flandres are only a 10-minute walk away.
The two buildings are connected by a set of flat, vegetated roofs in the interior of the block. Fifteen apartments (studios with 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms) face Rue de l’Indépendance, while 6 apartments (1 and 2 bedrooms) are accessible via Rue Ransfort.
The residents of the 21 apartments share a series of common areas, such as a communal laundry room, a multi-purpose room and a bicycle parking lot. In addition, each building has a space for storing pushchairs, as well as waste disposal and technical facility rooms.
