MARECREO revalues discarded maritime sedimentary materials in interior and architecture design.

MARECREO offers a local vision of architecture by using characteristic discarded materials from the French Atlantic coast: maritime sediments.
Here, the project aims to value local resources in design applications such as tiles and wall coatings. Thus, the resulting aesthetic is inspired by those unique materials, their intrinsic properties and the local topography. Thinking locally and developing emerging materials from natural resources lead to new approach of architecture from its origins: materials.
Indeed, currently water and sand are the main missing materials on Earth, while they are also the main used materials in contemporary architecture. With MARECREO, discarded maritime sediments lead to proper applications by transgressing ancestral craft techniques in nature workshop. Inspired by its environment, this approach of architecture and design aims to propose a new definition of architecture through key words: sustainable – local – natural.
