Bottiére Chênaie is a new district and landscape transformation in the North-East part of Nantes.
The aim of the competition program and the project was to revitalize the area comprised within the high traffic Sainte-Luce street, a tram line and railway lines, bringing together residential, commercial and office buildings.
The South-West building contains offices, supermarket, parking and residential units. It draws a line to the East forming a small square for rainwater collection and generating an open space.
The large central block is formed by ground level shops facing Sainte-Luce street, a parking area, and above-ground units.
The North-East end is characterized by a residential tower with ground floor shops adding a strong, compelling element to the landscape.
