Around a courtyard
A courtyard occupies the centre of the building, sparing an introversion of the ground plan defined by KCAP, architect coordinator. It unites diversed programs such as high standing housing, social housing, and an activity base. The higher part, up to 80 meters high, offers a view of the boulevard. Facing the canal and the sun, the building progressively decrease to only become a base. Passageways allow access to accommodations. Energetic performances are enhanced, the geothermy is used and doubled by individual heat pumps.
