In 1971, French architect Vladimir Kalougine inaugurated La Résidence Kalouguine in Angers, France. Built between 1971 and 1975, the project was strongly inspired by the Maison Berron which he previously built in Dieulefit. The latter was led in collaboration with sculptor Maurice Chaudière and engineer Claude Bancon. La Résidence Kalouguine consists of nine residential buildings with a total of 219 appartments. Spread in a quite park, this site was the first in the country to use projected concrete on a multi-storey building. The initial plan was to grow plants all over the structure but the latter got turned down due to the fragile isolation of the building.
