Green real estate is at the heart of the project
If we were to find a synonym for Ecotone, it would certainly be the word ‘edge’. In the dictionary, an ecotone designates a transition space between two different types of landscapes, such as a desert and a forest for example. The real estate project Ecotone therefore leaves no doubt about its future function: it will be a space of multiple transitions, between city and forest, nature and urbanism. Beyond linking the spaces thanks to its geographical position, Ecotone personifies those links in its structure.
Forming an impressive 26-meter tall green vessel, Ecotone's walls and terraces are covered by plants from the region, especially lavender. These provide the building with a deep and sparkling colour in summer, somewhere between purple and mauve. At the sight of the project model, some inspired observers have compared Ecotone to some landscapes from the Avatar movie, or to a real life representation of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
