Neither in the center of the town, nor really on its outskirts, regarding the urban development of the northern part of the street Pierres blanches, the location of Pierres Blanches Cultural Center designed by RAUM offers the opportunity to reinforce the development of the city.

"Raw and sustainable materials such as terracotta, concrete and wood minimize maintenance costs but are mainly employed as a tool for proposing a sober and timeless contemporary architecture. the quality of these materials structures the ambient environment, both inside and outside, and fully participates in making singular the project and its ‘atmosphere’. the major reception areas (hall, reception hall, meeting room, music room) benefit from very high ceilings and generous openings that frame the landscape, and witness the important porosities created between indoor spaces and outdoor spaces of differentiated qualities. these two architectural instruments offers a monolithic volume plural interpretations of the functions and the center’s uses, putting it in a larger geographical context."
