On Bordeaux’ Rive droite along the Garonne River JA designed a new residential complex as part of the larger redevelopment area Bastide-Niel, designed by MVRDV with JA. The project is located facing a new parc of Michel Desvigne along the river and offers views from a maximum height of 10 floors towards the UNESCO heritage old city of Bordeaux.


Consisting of 3 buildings, 1 large and 2 small based on the footprint of existing constructions andinfrastructure, it keeps the layout of the site. This new neighbourhood aims to connect completely with theadjacent existing residential area.


The resulting volumes are cut at the optimum angle to allow maximum daylight for all apartments, even on the lower floors. This creates a unique and varied light-scape with volumes allowing a wide selection of apartment types. These range from student housing, social apartments, penthouses, duplexes and triplexes.
The buildings are completely covered in one single material to emphasize the volumes and create a high-quality roof landscape, which is visible from across Bordeaux. The larger volume has a travertine concrete facade tracing the previous building’s outline and is covered in mother of pearl-white ceramics above. While the two smaller volumes are completely clad in natural sandstone, the stone the city of Bordeaux is famous for.
