EMBRACING porto-vecchio’S Normal LANDSCAPE OF ROCKS AND TREES

 

With the guiding theory of the project currently being the preservation of the landscape, Dominique Coulon & Associés drew up a exact survey of just about every tree and each individual rock of the proposed web-site in Porto-Vecchio. ‘The shape of the developing is deduced from these attribute things, which we had been nervous to protect,’ describes the french architecture studio. The job embraces the trees and rocks by means of its concrete curves, forming out of doors and indoor areas that greatly enhance the landscape’s natural beauty. To the north, a sweeping curve encloses the open up air backyard garden, accessed by way of a ramp that makes its way by means of the trees, preserving the first topography. This open room characteristics an area for looking through, conviviality, exchanges and development. There, just one can come across a herb and botanical backyard, a sky observatory, an out of doors projection place, and a shaded terrace.

 

The project is formulated to deliver end users with generous and relaxed areas, linked both to city everyday living and the encompassing landscape. The inside is described by fluidity and transparency, with capabilities next one immediately after the other in a harmonious coexistence. Joyful and stimulating, the library’s areas aspect abundant pure light-weight even though featuring panoramic views of the city. ‘It is the things of the web-site that generate the plasticity of this project, echoing the landscape by revealing its elegance,’ notes Dominique Coulon & Associés.
