Bassins à flots
Located between the city’s Bacalan and Chartrons areas, Bordeaux’s new Bassins à Flots neighbourhood will be made up of large plots traversed by landscaped pathways articulated perpendicularly to the ponds (bassins). The specificity of the plot in which our project is situated is that it is at the junction of the Bassins à Flots and Bacalan neighbourhoods with, to the north, land belonging to the Ministry of the Interior.
The ambition of our project is to demonstrate that it is possible to create individuality in a programme of 394 residential units with a total floor area of 25,000m².
Thanks to a series of communal public, semi-public and private spaces, the project is open onto the city. A landscaped pathway divides the site into two parts. Mineral courtyards are incorporated into the continuity of streets and pathways outlined in the guide plan. The northern part of the project is served by a promenade. The raised communal gardens feature small ensembles of fewer than 100 residential units each.
