Conceived as a multi-purpose community space, transformable from a single hall with a capacity of 450 into two smaller independent spaces conceived for a wide range of activities (weddings, concerts, parties, conferences), the project includes kitchen and catering facilities, dressing rooms, and other services. Situated in the French Norman town of Canteleu, its dark exterior zinc cladding contrasts with the light, resonant softwood interior carved from its shell.
