This apartment is located at the heart of Ecusson, a district in Montpellier that is naturally damp. The old render was removed and replaced by a beautiful white stucco made with Tradical® H 98 lime, using a specific home-made recipe developed by Luce Borel, who specialises in this type of plaster work. Air lime is mixed with talcum powder and marble powder with different particle sizes and then applied in four coats. The last coat is burnished to give this natural stucco its smooth and shiny look. The atmosphere inside was transformed and now has a resolutely calming effect.
During the preparation phase, the irregularities in the stone walls were dubbed out using a traditional lime render, made with Tradical Bâtir, to obtain a perfectly flat surface.
