One is as if from gold, pushing the existing dwelling, the Corten steel is another (found in other places too ... at the gateways in particular). The project is located in the post-industrial steel exclusively zone. Like the post constructions -médiévales were built with castles recovery elements deserted by the Lords ... We like the idea that steel come punctuate a few projects in the region. "
