Local Departmental Offices of Lot
St Céré (46)- France
Wooden cladding for responsible architecture.
Constructing a public building is not simple when it has to follow an environmental approach as well as maintain a balance between its visual identity and its professional identity as the local offices for the department of Lot.
These objectives were met by choosing hardwood, a prestigious and natural, living material with intrinsic qualities including CO2 storage even after transformation.
The wooden cladding gives the building elegance and clean lines.
