"Environments change with the seasons. In Guérande, this means paying particular attention to the seasonal nature of the urban and architectural project. The landscape and hydrological aspects have structured our thinking, materialised in the project by the green and blue path running through the town. The uses of public and private spaces are designed to evolve, adapting to the high and low tourist seasons."
