Bordeaux Paludate : a new chapter for Lucien Bernard.

A new administrative and commercial building, a renovated cellar... Between 2017 and 2020, the Paludate site was completely redesigned and refurbished in a way that enhances its historical heritage while incorporating a resolutely contemporary layout.

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.

"A forward-looking approach and a respect for tradition. Two values ​​woven seamlessly together in the construction of the building and renovation of the cellar".

A new milestone in the history of Lucien Bernard
