Jardin de Queyries

Master Plan for an ecological neighbourhood in Bordeaux, France
The traces of the the historical structures on the site create a scale and diversity of building sizes fitting in the neighbourhood. Regulations for maximum daylight and sunlight, which shape the volumes, are applied to allow the best comfort and lowest energy usage while leading to a new icon along the river. Building on a flood plain the free passage of water necessitates lifting up the volume, providing at the same time a public viewing point towards the river. A water treatment system is applied in the central garden and solarpanel facades produce energy.
