With a beating heart

2016

The Belvedere

Bordeaux (33) France

Unprecedented urban growth in the Saint-Jean Belcier region is projected by the arrival of the tgv.
Bordeaux-Metropole has undertaken one of the largest national development operations.
In this context, the "Belvedere" district is perhaps the most emblematic of the Bordeaux river metropolitan heart. 
Anchored on the right bank of the Garonne in the axis of the Pont Saint-Jean, its role is to reclaim part of the city that has been neglected until now.
This neighbourhood project provides a unique opportunity to be there, both by the river and in the heart of the bustling city centre.
Here the landscape blends intimately with urban planning as an ecosystem, making this place a true natural city.
The architecture is presented as a large continuous ribbon, framing in front a large mineral esplanade in belvedere on the River, behind some hearts of islets generously protected with vegetation.
The expected growth is such that programmatic projections are difficult to stop. The buildings are therefore designed to be flexible and open to all future possibilities.
However, the dimensions, shape, structure and facades contribute to bringing richness to individual and collective life. The vaults, terraces, inhabited facades, etc... preserve the amenity of the place in this area of phenomenal expansion.
