As an autonomous living being, the building proposed in Batignolles is entirely made of biosourced materials (wooden structure) or recycled (zinc gutter). It feeds on sunlight through photovoltaic sensors on its roof and feeds on rainwater thanks to its vegetated gutters.

In the same way as the human body, a building is only a temporary transformation, a storage of energy and vital forces. And if there is a share of mystery in every corner of nature, it is the same in each building. The return of nature to the urban environment is today a manifest and evident will of both citizens and developers. The developments in the entire Batignolles district assert these choices. In addition to the ground-level spaces at street level, green facades not only bring a picture of nature to the city but also a quality from inside the building. This perception generates comfort and well-being, especially in an office building. A basin proposing a playful and pedagogical development is provided on the free part of the plot. The clear water coming from the filter gutters feeds this pool and brings to the place the sound of a living water.
