New construction and improvements.

The technology of the cube is based on a system similar to naval architecture, using a selfpatinating CORTEN steel shell with a colour that reminds one of the chromaticness of the stone used in construction in the village. The overall dimensions come from a study of street clearances for transport of the 4 components comprising the volume. The technology is the outcome of a partnership between companies, engineers, and technicians. The complexity and innovation led us to create a prototype cube, measuring three metres on each side. The technical aspects then guided our path toward a spatial and poetic development, helping to highlight the human scale of the design in the studies down to the details.
