Ateliér à Torcí Facade

Merit Award
Ateliér à Torcí Facade, Rennes, France, Batir France Ingéniere S.A.

France’s Ille-et-Vilaine region in the east of Brittany is an important art, history, and culture center. Surrounded by its medieval architecture and cultural treasures, a modern business park sits on the busy expressway linking Rennes with LeMans.

A well-known cheese company located in the business park saw the opportunity for high visibility along the expressway. In Fall 2007, the building’s façade was covered with 167 square meters of Illumesh, a metal fabric mesh made of recycled stainless steel with integrated LED technology.
