A unit formerly used as a Coca-Cola depot becomes a Town Hall and a Civic Centre. The industrial standard foundations and flooring, the load-bearing frame, the exterior skin with its insulation and weatherproofing, services, installations and equipment, boilers, water pipes, anti-fire installations, plumbing, drainage and even parking facilities, fencing and access have all been preserved.
The author focuses the intervention with the approach of sustainable exuberance whi.
At street level this railway viaduct was a barrier, full of derelict sheds and warehouses. The new retail front has the area buzzing with activity and ensures the permeability of the infrastructure with frequent wide and safe access points to the pedestrian viaduct and pedestrian walkways between the neighbourhoods it used to separate.
Using new materials in the interior space has been restricted with the aim to safeguard the potential of the arches. Tenants of the premises can choose from .
Part of a former railway line has been made into a walkway and alongside an overhanging observation deck has been installed. The floor is wooden decking and large benches are set 30 cm above the level of the path. The few existing lamp posts have been replaced by wallwashers throughout the route, while the benches have had embedded down-lighting installed.

Following the demolition of the constructions and the recovery of the setting as a nature park, the road network was adapted for limited visitor circulation. The main road (2 km) was reduced to a single 3.5 metre section and was uniformly resurfaced with asphalt. Only two roads which divided the beach have been taken up and replaced by one single road further away.
The section type of the reused road comprises two steel lateral profiles between which the asphalt surfacing is laid out..
The new water treatment plant recovers the visual, hydrological and ecological links which were lost when the first facilities were opened in 1989. The structure recreates the original landscape of the area and tries to bridge the gap produced by the numerous infrastructures which make their presence felt. The roof is a thick living layer which contains both the water treatment facilities and the offices of the company which manages them. This layer is opened up to allow for the circulation e.
The transformation of a former power station into the Bordeaux House of Architecture was based, according to its architects FABRE/deMARIEN, on the co-existence of both existing and new elements. Traces of former occupancy on the walls were preserved while new elements were painted white. Six months after moving in, the client – a group of institutions made up of the College of Architects, the House of Architecture, the Architects Training Centre and the Architecture et Commande Publique.
