The project takes place in a heterogeneous urban context, marked by the history of Nantes' island. It takes its inspiration from the shipyards, genuine places of local savoir-faire when it comes to metal work construction. The project proposes on the one hand a fragmented volume, echoing the faubourien (suburban) context of this neighborhood, and on the other hand facades dressed with a perforated metal skin underlined by concrete horizontal lines, unifying the building.
