Le quartier populaire Pavillons – Avenir


Pavillons – Avenir – Verdun popular district

Inspired by the concept of the garden city designed by the English Ebenezer Howard, the future district includes workers’ small houses, now listed in the “Architecture and Heritage Valorization Zone”.

About forty of them, built in the 1920s and making part of a low-cost renting program, are identical. Each of them, surrounded by a garden, hosts two apartments. Their symmetric façades are decorated by concrete half-timbering, painted on the upper parts.

The external structure revisits the Normand style, modifying the volumes’ geometric aspect, the materials’ colours and texture. Since 2004, these houses were renovated to comply with certain standards. They are now part of the 520 social houses of the City of Deauville (32% of the permanent houses).
