The renovated square provides the public with a newly rejuvenated, vibrant and green environment in the heart of Bordeaux. A synthesis of quality green space, urban infrastructure, heritage and craftsmanship.
Previously overwhelmed with heavy traffic flow, the project has improved the accessibility of the square by relocating vehicles and providing a generous space for bikes and pedestrians. Framing the square with a dappled canopy, the new design preserves existing centenary trees and introduces a variety of over fifty new trees.
Replanted and redesigned, transforming a road junction into a lush urban square
