Les HBM

Historic site and monument

Presentation

In 1932, the Loucheur law was passed to allow the construction of 200,000 homes and offer attractive loans to individuals. It is within this framework that F. Clermont and A. Bossu are in charge of the construction of this set of Habitations à Bon Marché (HBM), in Istres.
Composed of 84 housing units spread over four floors, this building is distinguished by its plan, which runs along Boulevard Frédéric Mistral, adopting the curve of the old rampart of the historic center.
The facade appears as a single block, as if eight buildings had been placed side by side, the stairwells set back, connecting them together. No decor breaks the rhythm of the facade: the only fantasy granted, a darker plaster on the ground floor creates a distinction with the floors, which are brighter. The whole is pierced in its center by an arcade, overlooking a courtyard adorned with a fountain, a place of conviviality necessary for any group of collective housing.

This is an atypical district and housing, emblematic of Istres.
