City Municipal Office Complex in Bordeaux, France by ECDM Architects

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Article source: ECDM Architects

Our proposal is for a unifying building, a building that represents both the Mériadeck neighborhood and the old city, that participates in defining an urban landscape and carries the values of a society more open to its environment. It was therefore around the creation of an open space, a space of convergence and exchange that we wanted to organize the program, a space framing the city, organizing open programs and services around the borders, a space animated by its users and actors. It acts as a beautiful and lively space, where the dynamism of Bordeaux is displayed for a close and urban administration.

Located among a low-rise residential neighborhood, a new location for a software developer–SUNONE presents designers with a great challenge dealing with quality of living for existing residence and working condition for the new comer. In order to preserve serenity of an area, respect privacy for each residence and simultaneously create pleasing working environment for staffs, pattern of horizontal screening was introduced to the project. Not only does it create visual barrier between inside and outside; allowing no direct sight from inside to surrounding residence, but does it serve as light filter generating array of light quality for interior space.

This project is bound up with the reunification of the two Germany. It was related to the wish of a city, Berlin, then about to become the capital, to be nominated for the Olympic Games in the year 2000.
