Text description provided by the architects. This housing complex takes place on the western limit of a block, facing the future business district. The location on the Loire basin contributes at the desire to provide housing multiple unobstructed views of the city. 137 housing units "studio type" of an area of 21 sqm each are organized on 11 levels and are served by two lifts and inner circulations with daylight. A meeting room is located in west front on the 11th floor. Residents get the benefit of a vast garden at first floor, designed by Florence Marty, landscape architect.
