Salorge Town Community Building in Pornic, France by Atelier Arcau

Saturday, October 6th, 2012

Article source: Atelier Arcau

The town of Pornic’s elected representatives expressed their “deep-rooted” commitment to regional tradition, immediately excluding any other architectural form that did not match the traditional volumes and templates of the Pays de Retz, such as roofs with gable roofs, covered in tiles.
Because the Communauté de Communes (Town Community) Centre had to fit into a business park already denoted by previous building projects (hospitals, police station, office buildings), which had all been subjected to these regulations, we chose to make a different contextual offer in relation to the site and its history.
