One of the country’s biggest weekly magazines, Le Point, has devoted an article on housing projects for flood plains in France. The Kevell, the design for a house on stilts or floats proposed by Aquashell, is presented in the article as a solution to the administrative reluctance to issue building permits on flood plains. The Kevell project anticipates this problem by subjecting its houses to the legislation governing boats.
The result of the IDDIL initiative, models of floating house such as the Kevell are being developed throughout Brittany. This is giving lots of tourists the opportunity to discover the advantages of lodgings on the water. Starting in May of this year, the Ty Nadan campsite will welcome the first visitors to be able to try out life on board the Kevell for real.
