Text description provided by the architects. On the Right Bank of Bordeaux, along the Garonne, JA has designed a new residential complex as part of the larger Bastide-Niel redevelopment area, designed by MVRDV with JA. The project is located opposite a new Michel Desvigne park along the river and offers views from a maximum height of 10 floors towards the UNESCO-listed old town of Bordeaux.

Consisting of 3 buildings, 1 large and 2 small based on the footprint of existing buildings and infrastructure, it retains the layout of the site. This new neighborhood aims to fully connect with the adjacent existing residential area.

The resulting volumes are cut at the optimum angle to allow maximum daylight for all apartments, even on lower floors. This creates a unique and varied lightscape with volumes allowing for a wide selection of apartment types. These range from student accommodation, social apartments, penthouses, duplexes and triplexes.

The buildings are entirely covered with a single material to emphasize the volumes and create a quality roof landscape, visible from all over Bordeaux.

The larger volume has a travertine concrete facade retracing the outline of the previous building and is clad in white pearlescent ceramic above. While the two smaller volumes are entirely covered in natural sandstone, the stone that makes the city of Bordeaux famous.
