Headquarters of architecture firm Forma 6, the Regional Council of Architects, Regional Centre of Architecture
The name Ile Rouge, or Red Island, is taken from the Corten steel (which has "rusty" appearance) that covers its facades. Designed by the architects at Forma 6, the project embraces its industrial past and will be home to Forma 6, the Regional Council of Architects and the Regional Centre of Architecture.
At the heart of the Creative Arts District, Forma 6 and its partner companies initiated a real estate development, located on the Front Populaire mall, just steps from the new School of Architecture and the future School of Fine Arts.
Thanks to this strategic location, the Regional Council of Architects, previously located in Angers, decided to move to Nantes and promote its activities in connection with the Regional Centre of Architecture.
Ile Rouge, clad in metal mesh and surrounded by vegetation, expresses its designers' desire to generate a new sustainable dynamic for construction.
