The singularities of this site are reflected in the project : transposition of the lithography of rocks, chunks of cliffs landed on a lawn, mirror effect and interaction between vegetal and mineral influences, organization of traffic in curtains as to magnify an unusual scenery : an Atlantic panorama from the hilly Spanish coast to the northern sand beaches.

On the upper part, a cantilever as a gateway to the city provides this great panorama.

As a response to the ocean, a water-table and a garden mark the entrance to the city and separate the promenade and bike path from the traffic.

Professional profile of architects and designers

Debarre Duplantiers Associés is a multidisciplinary office for metropolitan studies.

The firm is comprised of three poles, architecture, urban planning and landscape design, that work much like a pair of 3D glasses : the desired effect is only achieved when both lenses are working in unison.

This consubstantial interaction forms a foundation from which all of the firm’s projects are based.

Now working on various projects in France and abroad (Belgium, Africa, Taiwan …), Anouk Debarre and Martin Duplantier simultaneously teach at university (Bordeaux, Rosario, Santiago de Chile, Kaohsiung).

Their ability of thinking contextual and thus reviewing the public space paradigm, enables them to develop ever-changing schemes where innovation and imagination can prevail.
