The development of a new neighborhood in the outskirts of Nantes has as a main goal to create a new center in north-east Nantes. This group is conformed by 70 houses, 16 intermediate housing and 78 collective housing. The presence of trenches, valleys and a pond in the complex invited the design to recede towards the topography of the Nantes area, marked by natural irrigation.
