    ​This reference building in Guadeloupe is emblematic of a search for comfort and minimizing environmental impacts at lower overall cost. It was designed in an Environmental Quality approach Building (QEB) in tropical environments, which relies heavily on a bioclimatic design of the architectural project.

    By exploiting the natural resources of the site (climate, topography) and fully respecting the natural environment (existing remarkable trees, minimizing cut and fill, landscaped entry, optimized orientation ...) serving a bioclimatic operation mode (to ie without use of air conditioning), the building is now recognized as a benchmark for Environmental Quality of the Building in the tropical context.
