The spirit of the promenade is found today in traces; the stone bedrock (the walls) and a double alignment of trees.
To create continuity with the site history we envisaged the restoration of walls and stairs on site as well as the conservation and renewal of the woodland both in the short and long term. A central pathway punctuates the different viewpoints, crossings and the particular locations. This central thread is made up of a parvis with two squares and a path along the promenade. At the centre of the alley this central path dilates, forming the Place des Fêtes. This passage marks the route of the chemin de St Jacques de Compostelle.
Stimulate a renewal of uses
The project offers comfort, modernity and a selection of new experiences. Most of all it’s about the transformation from car park to park by freeing up the promenades and reorganising parking on the scale of the neighbourhood whilst still keeping parking spaces nearby.
Establish a clear and evolving project
The short and the long term is considered in this project; the spaces are made to be adaptable. Our project is intended to progressively change people’s habits, along the promenade parking will be grouped in two pockets opposite the public facilities. Whilst these two car parks are being constructed parking will be provided along the road
