The steel is recycled and reclaimed 100% ie it is reusable indefinitely and found all of its original properties after treatment of steel. Of more often it is produced locally, the routing of material structural work presents an overview Low carbon. The implementation of the steel framing system under construction is done by assembly. the steel housings are easy to disassemble, we recover the components and recycled.
The project is the choice of expressing a habitat in the density of implantation and two totaling 11 units. These two types are as two ways to integrate into the site, two wills of dialogue with the slope and meet the demands of the various programmatic typologies. The building to the east of the site has a slender volume, placed horizontally on the rock with an opening on the panorama from the bed of the Loire. The roof is single but has inflections in conjunction with cutting of Crete rear of the cliffs.
