Raphaëlle chéré landscape designer

The Loire River, first inspiration for the gardens in the making.

CEO of SATIVA Paysage since 2010, Raphaëlle Chéré is a landscape engineer graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Nature et du Paysage de Blois (ENSNP).

She develops a sensitive approach to spaces in a desire to create a sustainable link within the urban space.

Specialized in alternative stormwater management and in ecological construction and engineering techniques, it is attached above all to a sustainable approach

SATIVA Landscape is taking over the Fleur de Loire gardens project from Nicolas Orgelet, the landscape designer who initiated the project, in order to bring it to fruition. 

The first challenge was to characterize the unchanging Loire landscape within the different spaces around the building, and to bring back the vegetal and fluvial aspect in the scenography of the site.

The use of limestone but also of sustainable materials from the region will also dress the site, in continuity with the public spaces of the city.

The search for permeability and the reconstitution of environments are key elements dear to both chef Christophe Hay and Raphaëlle Chéré, both of whom are committed to a sustainable eco-responsible approach

Just like the daily changing landscapes of the Loire, the garden will be varied and moving in this same inspiration.
