Requalification of the Tri Postal block - Construction of 77 housing units

CoBe - Bordeaux Saint Jean Belcier Tri Postal

A few hundred metres from Bordeaux Saint-Jean station, opposite the Marché d'Intérêt National (MIN), in the Armagnac Nord sector of the Saint-Jean Belcier ZAC, CoBe is building the L1&L2 housing lots of the Tri Postal mixed-use block coordinated by the ECDM agency. Designed on behalf of BNP Paribas Real Estate, the two lots comprise 33 social rental units and 44 open-access units.

Within this first phase, CoBe was responsible for the design of the two emergences and their respective bases located at the extreme east of the plot. They constitute the L1 and L2 lots of the project. The two entities, served by two separate halls, are composed of 33 social housing units and 44 self-owned units ranging from T1 to T5, distributed equally on all levels.

The top two floors contain duplexes with double-height living rooms. The basement houses commercial premises and parking spaces on two levels, as well as storerooms available to each of the flats.

As the project is entirely designed on the edge of the plot and therefore does not benefit from any public space, all the dwellings have large external extensions of an average of 10m², whether they are balconies or loggias on the first four floors. The housing buildings are the same width as the neighbouring office buildings (20.5 metres), and their volumes have been cut out of the mass to create two-metre wide outdoor spaces on each façade.

All the dwellings enjoy distant views over the great Bordeaux landscape, and are not overlooked by other dwellings.
