Bordeaux Paludate : a new chapter for Lucien Bernard.
3,000 m2 spread over 5 floors on the quay side of the complex. The new Bernard Group administrative and commercial building on the Quai de Paludate is situated among major hotels, head offices and cultural and gastronomic hotspots of the Bordeaux Euratlantique district, which is currently undergoing a major revival.
At the time of its design by Bordeaux-based agency blp & associés, winner of an architectural competition between four candidates, a certain foresight was required to depict the buildings that would eventually rise between the Groupe Bernard site and the Garonne. The latter served as inspiration for the impressive cantilever hovering over the central aisle, which provides a window onto the river. The design of the structure also required careful observation of the remarkable original façades, witnesses of history, which have been recovered and further enhanced by the project.
