    3 questions to the architect Nicolas Loret

    What were your inspiration sources?

    «Through the perspectives and reflections, the idea of using the images of the Loire landscapes has been accepted, with declining water movements on the Loire and the reflections of lights and landscapes. It was inspired by this theme to create a glass envelope on the curtain wall. This filter gives an impression of sparkling and ripples.»

    How did you integrate the remains of the thirteenth century wall?

    «We modified the project so that the wall may become visible to the public. We created a hollow in the building that passes over the wall. A staging device, with a staircase and a small platform allows to see the whole wall from the height of the old walkway. »

    What is your work as an architect when the work begin?

    In collaboration with the foreman of our firm, my work is to constantly monitor the companies work so that it is coherent with the project design.
