Two planted patios provide the building with depth. All traffic routes have natural light, making them ideal for strolling.
They widen with changes of direction, accommodating sitting areas in warm shades of pink and red where ergonomically designed banquettes are conducive to group conversations among the residents. Particular attention has been paid to making the collective areas both fluid and transparent. The dining rooms occupy a central balcony position looking towards the lobby, opening broadly to the south. Sheltered terraces are a further addition to the residents’ quality of life.
The rooms, each measuring 20 square metres, have been very carefully designed. The combination of bay windows and furnishings reinforces the feeling of thickness of the facade.
The diversity of the three types of room is enhanced by the careful attention paid to both colour and solar orientation.
The building is certified to high energy performance standards. The exterior insulation confers good inertia and provides a high level of thermal comfort. In drawing up this project, particular care has been paid to use and functionality.
Everything has been done to use routes, natural light and materials to best advantage, producing living spaces which respect the dignity of their residents.
