The development project of “le Clos des Fées” is in phase with architectural and urban future issues, and attempts to combine ecology and economy, sustainable development and habitat.The logic which presided over its implementation is similar to that implemented in the neighborhoods.
Fighting against the mechanisms of self-absorption of the closed areas, the district was thought from the beginning as the meeting point for generations.The installation of equipment to the district a wider opening the territory meets economic district.
Finally, constructions made from natural materials, using local skills, and the natural treatment of the drainage system fall under the eco-design and ecology.The hamlet must accommodate the different generations, different populations, while remaining deeply rooted in the municipality and the region.The operation is divided into two distinct parts: the housing part housing, placed in continuation continuity with the subdivision of the existing spur, and a the garden party, a fundamental element for the radiance of the Clos des Fées and its economic attractiveness.A wide audience will be able to visit the garden, to learn about botany, to buy plants, and beyond, is to acquire awareness of the environment. To provide logistical support to these activities, a series of equipments - a common house, three artist Studios, repotting two farm workshops, was were incorporated into the garden.
Habitat section has 18 cottages.Following the example of traditional houses, their orientation was thought to protect the inhabitants of the prevailing winds.Their roofs use two materials. thatch, in the region, and zinc to the parts most exposed to the weather. a recycled traditional material used in a modern way.
The houses are not enclosed by fences but by hedges and valleys that collect rainwater, and bring it once collected at the end of the field.The common house, a central element of these infrastructures, invites to discover the great scenery, the alabaster coast. It has a large multi-purpose room and a courtyard covered welcoming weatherproof outdoor events.
