Stephanie Chaltiel graduated from France in 2005. During her studies in Grenoble, Madrid and Mexico, she was highly involved in the renewal of tropical habitat, highlighting all its potential for future generations. In Response to Awala-Yalimapo Mayor request to improve the local housing she co-founded the cassaV office. "Our strategy was to stress the very traditional until turning it into a very contemporary design that brings now a days comfort". cassaV had the help of the CRATerre unesco Laboratory all along the project development.
