Imagined by architectural firm Architecte Associes – Niort, the future mess of the 2900 m² Angoulême military base will consist of two 2 blocks: a "served" block (dining rooms, bar) and a "servant" block (technical premises, storage, kitchens, changing rooms). The articulation between these two spaces is the meal distribution area at the centre of the work.
Façade materials promote integration with the existing surrounding building context (mineral facade treated with lime-bleached grey concrete), those retained for the interior creating in the heart of the building user-friendly spaces like sharing meals (wood cladding, large volumes, bright).
- Presence of thermo voltaic solar panels that produce electricity but also warm the air for ventilation of the premises in winter and limit the heating needs.
- Energy recovery on cold groups of cold rooms for heating of domestic hot water.
