The Archdaily architecture website recently crowned this building in Montpellier the best building of the year in the housing category.
The architectural audacity to conceive a building with an array of cantilevering balconies and mini pergolas was rewarded with this award.
The 193 balconies never overlap, are not perpendicular to the façade and create an additional living space. It almost feels like “living in a tree”.
The architects focused on the indoor/outdoor experience in their design, albeit with one priority: every living room had to give out seamlessly on the balcony to eliminate the boundary between indoors and outdoors.
The sun-drenched terraces, which face the Mediterranean, have become a living space in their own right.
All the living spaces were designed in line with an eco-responsible approach, focusing on comfort and ecology, while taking the environmental impact into account.
