Brisac Gonzalez has submitted designs for a 450 space carpark in Bordeaux. The 16 000m2 project commissioned by Vinci / ADIM comprises 1400m2 retail on the ground floor and 19 rooftop apartments including 5 duplexes ranging from one to three bedrooms with generous gardens and terraces.

Inside the 4 storeys of parking a dynamic atmosphere will arise from the interplay of vibrantly painted ceilings, lighting scheme and the reflective surfaces of automobiles. The open floors afford natural light and ventilation, with expansive river views.

The project is part of the 738 hectare Euratlantique project that is spread across three municipalities Bordeaux, Bègles and Floriac. The site is close the banks of the Garonne river. The carpark is due for completion in 2016.


Bordeaux- Euratlantique

Bordeaux- Euratlantique is a development of over 738 hectares spread across the municipalities of Bordeaux, Bègles and Floriac. The project goal is to create an international business centre that will comprise various neighbourhoods, shops, offices, along with the transformation of the Bordeaux Saint- Jean train station, inspired in part by the creation of a fast rail link with Paris, into a major rail interface between southern and northern Europe by 2020.

A total of 2.5 million m2 will be built: including 1 million m2 of housing, 500,000 m2 of office space and 500,000 m2 of retail space. It is envisioned that the area will have 30 000 new residents and 20 000 new jobs will be created.
