Located facing the River Garonne with an outstanding position at the head of a block, the project is specific in that it involves a mix of residential, sports and aquatic uses. The scheme consists in an identifiable apartment tower block at the front end in the East, and an apartment plot in the West separated by a freely-massed aquatic amenity. The podium is made up of a sports centre, retail outlets, artists’ workshops and parking facilities. The aquatic centre consists of two swimming pools – a 25m x 15m pool and a pool for learners and leisure – and a paddling pool. There are also outdoor solariums facing towards the Garonne in a pleasant setting of trees.


The well-being space is located on the level of the swimming pools hall. It includes a hammam steam room, a sauna, showers and a relaxation space. On this same level, there are individual and collective changing rooms for groups and schoolchildren, who have their own special separate circulation route and an entrance on Quai de Paludate. The amenity has a fitness and body-building floor with its own separate changing rooms. The building’s bioclimatic design ensures user comfort in all seasons, as the external envelope reduces the effects of climate in both summer and winter.
