The principal objective was to attend the French BBC Building Label (Batiment Basse Consommation/ Low Energy Consumption) with C equal or inferior to 50 KWhep/sq . A primary concern in conceiving the building was the integration of the architecture into the landscape and the ownership environmental ambitions. A particular attention was concerned to the skin of the building. To transmit the image of a light construction, we decided to incorporate to the prefabricated concrete panels, composing the façade, around 100000 stainless steel rounds of a diameter of 7cm. The skin of the building loses its limits and reflects the surrounding landscape.
