Near the tree

At the gateway of the Beaujolais vineyards, the project contributes to the qualification of one of the city’s entrances.

The location of the project is defined by the preservation and the emphasis on the existing landscape heritage.

The corolla of trees defines the pentagonal shape of the building and gives it its architectural identity. The building offers qualitative housing, both by their orientation and their typology.

All of the apartment plans offer generous living rooms extended by large outdoor spaces.

As for the materials used, they bring a pure, timeless and long-lasting feeling to the building.

The concrete façade is stained in warm tones. It has a faded red color that complements the dominant green.

17 housing units at the gateway of the Beaujolais vineyards, where the entire design – volume, layout, exterior spaces and colors – was guided by the preservation of the existing plant heritage.
