Although its framework is made of reinforced concrete, it is built with classical materials and still belongs to the regionalist movement, which was abundant at the beginning of the 20th century. Its chapel, redesigned in 1961 by Henry-Jacques Le Même, is lit by a path of flagstones, mosaics and glass embedded in cement, made by Father Ephrem Socard, from the abbey of St Benoît d'en-Calcat.
