The building is currently being renovated with a regenerative approach developed by Assemble Studio and BC Architects. This approach is regenerative in economic, social, and material terms: it is developed collaboratively with local stakeholders and know-how, and involves training local communities to use this new approach to construction.
All of Atelier LUMA’s explorations into materials will find a home in Lot 8, which will also host another important aspect of the Atelier’s work: learning and knowledge sharing, with the aim of creating new networks and new ways of working together. Lot 8’s construction draws on processes found in nature involving collaboration, adaptation, and interdependence, in order to create a building within a building, that can host Atelier LUMA’s future activities.
The Lot 8 was awarded the Bâtiments Durables Méditerranéens OR label in the design phase!
The BDM approach accompanies and evaluates the environmental, social and economic aspects of a project from the design phase to the use phase. The level obtained during the design phase will become definitive after two years of use of the Lot 8 if the objectives validated during the design phase are met.
This approach is supported by the EnvirobatBDM association, which promotes the generalization of sustainable development in the act of building, rehabilitating and developing in the PACA region.
