The Combined District Council’s Headquarters
Pornic (44), France
A mix of indoor and outdoor cladding in the Pays de Retz.
When architects prescribed Ducerf’s THT wood and played with skill and respect for the heritage both inside and outside this HEQ bioclimatic office building, the result was magnificent.
There is perfect harmony evocative of a journey between old and modern.
