Text description provided by the architects. A low-energy nature center.

On the island of Corsica, a former watermill and its surroundings are converted into an free ecological nature center used as a base for meetings, hiking and swimming. It also offers an educational landscape that explores connections between energy and water, past and present.

A micro-hydro turbine provides electricity for the site. Built to reach energetical self-sufficiency, the construction is made of local Laricio pine, sweet chestnut tree, and indigenous stone from the site.
