From the architect. Design by Avignon-Clouet architects this project is home to a young couple and their three children.  Located within the vacinity of Le Corbusier Rezé a radiant city near Nantes this vertical volume is nearly a cap on the head of a Bigoudennedevelops.  At  a height of 11m this project is constructed from a wood frame, that is flipped entirely over, and  a white PVC membrane.

To comply with local plans, the aluminum overhang collects rainwater. The veritable Japanese fountain is activate with the slighted drizzle, filling the water retention pool to the brim.

As  a beacon amid a suburban sea, large balconies overflow with residents who offer unique perspectives on their community.
