ORSAY Conservatory (91) / project delivered in february 2018

The landscaping, the paths orientation and the presence of wooded massifs stage the new Departmental Conservatory of Saclay Plateau and participate in its opening to the outside. The access to the river Yvette is also highlighted by major axes of views. 

Our landscaping strategy is to establish storm water management through an open-air storage pond and to promote a plant palette of cover crops and grasslands to limit passage, green waste generation and maintenance costs. Finally, the large trees planting brings a better image to the spaces by promoting different atmospheres and by creating unity on the whole plot with the surrounding woods.
