rehabilitation, buc is a project by french firms ecdm and KLNB revitalising the former military fort. they developed an eco hotel program in harmony with the existing spaces, combining two major requirements which are to enable the achievement of an ambitious architectural project for the city and preserve the natural and built environment, generating a direct link between the existing residential area. wooden cabins have been added on top of the original fort, as well as spread across the site.
