Habiter Autrement & BARCODE Architects complete ‘Urban Cap’, striking ‘monolithic’ office building in Bordeaux


As part of an extensive redevelopment of the entire harbour area, Bassin à Flots at the west bank of the river Garonne in Bordeaux, Habiter Autrement and Barcode Architects have designed a timeless new building, undeniably revealing the future ambition of this harbour area to become one of the hip & trendy city destinations in Bordeaux. Bassins à Flots, Bordeaux’s main industrial harbour, is still active, but restaurants and homes now sit alongside the hangars, warehouses and silos. With the powerful simplicity of the design, Habiter Autrement and Barcode Architects subtly refer to the architectural language of the still omnipresent industrial environment.
