Port à l’anglais Joint Development Zone
Build in flood risk area
The urban project is a combination between the necessary urban logic of the docks and strong constraints due to flood risks in this area. A new public park is created as spreading zone. Regulations are decreed to keep apartments flood-safe and in the same time, to limit impacts on the car park and the ground floor. Raised gardens and planted areas insure the transition with the public space. On the Seine side, buildings line up their volumes following the dock geometry. Inside the block, openings allow each resident to enjoy beautiful views. The extension of existing streets enable the opening of the district onto the Seine.
