Since the Nozay site would accommodate 5000 people but space was at a premium, the Owner had no choice but to build an above-ground car park. We wanted its design to be as discreet as possible, so we cladded its walls with bubble shapes to create an effect of lightness. And the results are conclusive: from a distance, only circles can be seen. The outer staircases and facades are covered with plants, blending the building in even more with its wooded surroundings.
