Text description provided by the architects. The Kanoa tower is a project that fits into the vast urban development plan for the Island of Nantes.

This is a very understated building, whose shape, worked to the extreme, is the main feature.  To minimize the tower’s impact on the street, it was designed in a "boot" shape and discreetly covered in zinc, which was laid down in shingles to create a scaled effect.

Inside, the lobby is notable for its functionality and the diversity of programs that can be offered simultaneously.  This is a place for meetings and conviviality, where the structure’s modularity allows for many types of events thanks to its ephemeral boundaries.

The walls of wooden cladding incidentally serve as a place to park bicycles in suspension, and provide residents with individual lockers in which to store helmets and miscellaneous equipment.

On the ground floor, a parking lot is equipped with a system of automatic, superimposed parking spaces (vehicle lifts), thus doubling its capacity.
