From the architect. The construction is located on an old property that comprises several high-quality buildings, among which an orangery dating from the early 19th century.

The project includes the building into the living space. In the orthogonal structure adjustments of the property, the only exception will be the orangery, skewed by its location.

The volume of the new building articulates these two geometries and addresses the link between the two parties, the old and new.
