Bastide Niel Bordeaux
Master plan for Bastide Niel, a 35ha extension of Bordeaux’ city centre onto the right bank of Garonne River. The dense urban master plan will offer 3200 homes, offices and urban amenities, respect the existing fabric of the city and become one of the largest zero energy neighbourhoods in the world. The project Bastide Niel, with an envisioned urban program of up to 375.000m2 is regarded the most significant contemporary urban intervention in Bordeaux.

The project “Arc en Ciel” expands at the entrance to the neighborhood of Grand Park, to the corner of rue Portmann Huyard and Avenue Emile Counord in Bordeaux. The building, unusual in the neighborhood by its curved shape and colorful, hosts about forty homes and offices.

Positioned at an intersection and near a shopping center (which is part of a renovation project), it must manage its urban context, the flow of cars, tramway flows and thus pedestrians flows. This concentration has led to the creation of a square mineral easing movement and allowing the building to sit in the continuity of the public domain.
