1. The first, « Les Hauts Plateaux 1 », is a housing operation of 20 dwellings, 20 social ownership units, delivered in 2016 with the status of ‘sale before completion’ (VEFA). It really improves living conditions because each dwelling is evolving and the living spaces are particularly generous. The dwellings are given the opportunity to be extended by the inhabitants. Each of the dwellings has an additional area made for eventual extensions, on the Northern and Southern side. These facilities allow the housing to evolve, and give to the inhabitants the opportunity to make their home changing with the needs of life.
