Toulouse: a residence instead of the body shop on the banks of the canal
The “Hédoniste” estate residence was built on the banks of the Canal du Midi, in the Raisin district of Toulouse, by da Vinci Immobilier and the Toulouse architect Serge Zilio.
The new residence stands on the edge of the canal in place of an emblematic body shop in this sector of Raisin. It bears the residence name “Hédoniste”, probably to make one forget the industrious side of the establishment which preceded it on the site. Because it is a completely classic creation, even if designed in a very modern and sober style by the Toulouse architect Serge Zilio, of the SZ Architectures studio.
2 buildings with 94 apartments, from T1 to T4
Philippe de Villèle, deputy director of residential real estate and the regions of Vinci Immobilier, Jean-Luc Moudenc, mayor of Toulouse and president of Toulouse Métropole and Annette Laigneau, deputy mayor of Toulouse and vice president of Toulouse Métropole in charge of city planning, inaugurated, last Saturday , this real estate complex located in the heart of Toulouse, on the banks of the Canal du Midi.
