Once inhabited by industrial wastelands or disused factories, the Bassin à flots district has been able to offer itself a new youth. It has become a district as an extension of the city center of Bordeaux. From now on, it is a district where the people of Bordeaux can take the time to stroll in order to recharge their batteries. Indeed, in recent years, cultural places and living spaces have taken place. Among these places, the City of Wine,the Basins of Lights, the Marine Sea Museum or the Halles de Bacalan have become must-sees. But this rebirth does not stop there.

If the district values attractiveness, there is no question of putting aside the environmental dimension. Indeed, the project has been designed to create an environment that brings together two notions. It is a question of mixing the urban and the vegetal. In addition, the buildings are eco-responsible.
