Architecture

Le Galion, a combined architectural project, is characterised by a unique landscape that blends in seamlessly with the banks of the Cher river. The project, which includes an office building, a residential building (La Tour Lumière) and a company restaurant, is built around a garden that extends like a belvedere over the Cher river. With its transparent façades, the company restaurant offers panoramic views of the river. The Tour Lumière acts as an urban landmark owing to its height and unique cylindrical shape. Subtle white and metallic reflections bring the building’s façade to life, providing a sense of lightness and clarity that vary according to the natural light. The building offers panoramic views over the river, the city and the surrounding landscape. The Tour Lumière provides social housing for rent and for sale, as well as standard housing for sale. A balcony runs around each floor. This unique residential building is the highlight of the mixed-use plot. Offices are located to the south, around the garden. The landscape runs seamlessly into the office buildings. This horizontal design is emphasised by the panels of the brise-soleil and the terraced layout.
