Chercher à construire un « mono­ space » sur une parcelle contrainte par l’existant, à quelques encablures du centre ville et du secteur historique sauvegardé, aurait pu apparaître comme une prise de risque inconsidérée… Et pourtant, c’est bien une plaque monolithique qui a su convaincre. Une plaque toutefois quelque peu « déhanchée » - pour s’adapter aux pressions qu’exerce le web site et notamment au changement de course imposée par l. a. configuration du terrain. Mais en occupant l’essentiel de l. a. floor au sol constructible admise par les règles d’urbanisme, elle a réussi à ne pas dépasser une côte équivalente à quatre niveaux, et à dérouler une épure, non seulement en parfaite harmonie avec le skyline chambérien, mais encore perceptible depuis les rues adjacentes, par fragments.

And but it used to be the monolithic constitution that proved to be such a lot convincing, a constitution that's slightly asymmetrical as a result ‘bend’ within the development dictated through the form of the plot. Occupying lots of the buildable quarter lower than the zoning principles, it manages to not exceed a top comparable to 4 flooring and to create a venture that isn't basically in overall concord with the Chambéry skyline but in addition perceptible in fragmentary glimpses from the adjoining streets. 1. 2. 1.
