Passelac & Roques Architectes : Unité de production

Located in a former winery west of Béziers (34), the production unit of the Technilum furniture company is expanding under the leadership of Narbonne designers Passelac & Roques Architects. A work that blends elegantly into a unique heritage and landscape site.

Installed since 1999 within a vineyard - neglected in 1956 -, the French company quickly found itself cramped. A problem today settled thanks to the intervention of the agency Passelac & Roques Architects who imagines an extension reinterpreting the restanques Provence - retaining walls intended to create terraces of culture -, in a concrete version tinted in the mass, purified and contemporary, whose height reduces progressively until touching the ground.

More than integrated into its site, the project becomes a piece of landscape in its own right and is part of the continuity of the retaining structures and ditches around, typical of the wine region. The purpose of the construction was to blend completely into the green site, so that only the presence of sheds on the roof - intended to illuminate the whole zenith - indicate the presence of this new element.

Linked to the existing building by a glazed interior street, the set of 4 461 square meters is composed of a main volume dedicated to the production, and annexes - offices and workshops - distributed on two levels along the north facade . The whole is surmounted by a green roof, thus prolonging the relationship of the building with its environment.

A strong architectural identity subtly associated with the surrounding vegetation.
