Facing the Vilaine River, and at the intersection of three major public spaces in the ZAC, this programme offers the district an emblematic entrance and a new commercial centrality.
This polymorphous vessel develops a commercial base of 1000 m² on 2 levels topped with a tower of 16 levels to the north, 8 levels to the southwest, townhouses on 2 levels in between, and finally a volume of 5 levels to the southeast.
Among these figures, the tower is an exceptional one in the urban landscape.
Yet here, in the context of Baud Chardonnet's Rennes sector, it is familiar and domestic thanks to the configuration of the apartments open at the corners on the Vilaine and by the landscaping of collective gardens on its base.
Everything is designed to live better: panoramic views of the distant landscape, multiple orientations at the four cardinal points, quality private spaces (gardens, loggias, terraces...) for all the apartments...
This architecture provides all the advantages of high-rise housing while preserving a powerful link with the ground through its interaction with public space.
