Project for Balaruc-les-Bains’ new thermal resort, located on the Languedoc-Roussillon coast.
The compound is composed of two buildings united by a large covered space, which works as an atrium and is crossed by footbridges located on different levels. Its volumes allow its integration in the natural environment as well as in the urban fabric. The compound is functional, bright and welcoming, and the design of the spaces and interior hallways gives a sensation of tranquility.
The use of quality, sea-weatherproof materials, characteristic of a contemporary, restrained and durable architecture is proposed. The design of the façades, which are always protected, allows superb views of the beautiful surroundings.
