Concrete and steel are too often the usual elements of an urban landscape that encloses city dwellers and completely covers their field of vision.
Today, aware of the distance from nature, some city dwellers attach importance to recreating a link with the natural world.
This residence presents itself as a haven of peace and invites you to live at the rhythm of nature and
of the seasons.
There, on the bank of the canal, laid out as a promenade along the water, a new and airy neighbourhood is rebuilding the links between the city and nature.
An architectural project that is responsible throughout its entire life cycle, which is rooted in the Andromède eco-neighbourhood Andromède is located in the municipalities of Blagnac and Beauzelle and is directly linked to the Toulouse city centre by the T1 tramway line.
Almost a third of the total area of the district is devoted to green spaces. In the heart of these 70 hectares of greenery, composed of five large north-south oriented courtyards and a green corridor linking with the banks of the Garonne to the east and the Bouconne forest to the west, Andromède combines rural calm with city life.
Deeply rooted in its environment, the residence places great emphasis on energy savings and environmental concerns, each flat is designed as an island of greenery
thanks to a rainwater recovery and irrigation system
and irrigation system that feeds the lush green pergolas.
Cascading terraces reinforce the green aspect,
of the architect, who has imagined this living space as an living space as an ecosphere.
