A few steps from the train station, the new Ibis Hotel in Nîmes distinguishes itself with its contemporary architecture. The corner of the two main façades on Place de l’ONU is dressed in a terracotta mesh that plays with the light and adds mystery and depth to the building. On a regular grid of vertical spines of reinforced steel, Autan® sunscreen baguettes are constructed in horizontal rows of four elements in one of three colours chosen by the architects from the wide range offered by Terreal. These terracotta features are distributed in a random manner for an original pixelated effect.
The layout of the mesh, one protrusion for each depression, is tighter than a sunscreen and makes for a true double skin through which the coated beige wall is barely discernible.
