The project is part of a set of actions to get an attractive and sustainable space. On a plot in the steep terrain, we adapt to it with molded shapes as three volumes that save the unevenness. The landscape is introduced into the building through attractive elongated courtyards which could guide the various offices of the offices by a north-south orientation logic and save the terrain variations between the two access roads.

The parking is accessed from the highest point of avoiding street digging a basement and thus lowering costs.

The three pieces seek dialogue with the uniqueness of the environment and adapt to their responsibilities and landscaping techniques.
