REUNION - PARIS - MAURICE
L’ATELIER exporte aujourd’hui son savoir-faire. Notre expertise en architecture bioclimatique et notre démarche éco-responsable nous ont permis de développer plusieurs projets à l’étranger (Myanmar, Maurice, Mayotte, Tanzanie, Qatar…).
At almost 800 meters above sea level, this Cultural Centre is situated within the steep slopes, humidity and ever changing climate that characterize the village of Trois Bassins in the West of Reunion Island. These characteristics form the architectural concept: successive buildings positioned on a set of terraces, perpendicular to the slopes to make the most of favorable winds for ventilation of interior spaces and to limit slides. The architectural differentiating factor is through the implementation of zinc coating that covers the roofs and overflows to the west side. The sculpture of the roof can create hollow spaces, patios and secluded living areas where specific vegetation can grow. These small air pockets not only provide an effective solution to climate constraints (ventilation, light) but also allow for calm and relaxing activities: reading in the library, creating a friendly exchange of cultural and artistic activities.
