From the architect. The urban need was to build a public infrastructure that hosts an associative space and an extra-curricular space. 

The project’s shape was born from the desire to attract people and invite them to enter the building.

The way the transition between outside and inside areas was drawn makes of this border between inside and out a real meeting space. 

On the main facade, the walls lean toward the inside of the building in order to generate an outside access hall.

The transparent gable walls offer large views on the outside, not only on the urban environment but also on the rural landscape. The simple shape of the infrastructure and the use of local stones and slates make the building perfectly merge into its urban surroundings.

Three different sizes of the granite stone were used for the main facade to give it a more contemporary aspect.

Product Description. The use of granite stones for the façade allows us to use a local material in relationship with the surroundings; the stones are between 0.3 and 1m long and between 0.03, 0.05 and 0.07m high. Their dimensions give a contemporary image to an old material.
