The landscape characteristics related to the site of installation of this new equipment are quite specific. 'The Causse' by its strong presence qualifies and characterizes the site. The challenge here was to set up a new building on a site strongly marked by a landscape of agricultural cultures. We are to be located at the entrance of the town of Gignac, and the stake consisted in positioning on this parcel more than a simple building, a real urban unit. In this direction, it seems fundamental to us that the architecture, resulted from the place, the site, the territory and not from any conqueror act. A village around a place. It is conceived like a whole of houses ordered around a central garden. The new buildings however don't reproduce the picturesque surrounding houses; they are fixed according to the same volumetric logic which allows a better insertion. Each batch has an independent access thus onto the garden. This distribution confers on each one autonomy and identity.
