Site Visit on 13th June

Please pay the fee by Thursday 23rd of May at the latest

The site visit at 'Domaine de Beaucastle' exemplifies a commitment by  stakeholders to minimize new resource usage in construction materials and reduce energy consumption, both in embodied and operational energy. This approach embodies a true circular economy ethos, showcased by the reuse of excavation soils on-site. Specifically, clayey soil was repurposed for rammed earth walls, visible in the brown walls depicted in the accompanying photos below (Photographes : Louis-Antoine Grégo).

Additionally, soils lacking clay were utilized in conjunction with cement, compacted with minimal water and without steel bar reinforcement. For further insights, refer to: Chateau de Beaucastel Renovation and Extension. Architects : Bijoy jain / Studio Mumbai + Louis Antoine Grego / Studio Mediterranee Grego Louis-Antoine.

Moreover, the visit offers the opportunity to explore the renowned vineyards of 'Chateauneuf du Pape' nearby, with complimentary wine tasting included.
