Cité Jardin Grand Parc is a new model of a garden city of 21st century located on the border of the parc of Versailles.The garden city is a relationship built between built forms and landscape forms at all scales. It is an inclusive and sustainable fabric by the diversity of lifestyles it offers.In the spirit of Le Nôtre, Cité Jardin Grand Parc articulates a global thought from the scale of the territory to the garden piece.
Four principles guide the proposal:
– reconnecting with nature
– promenades, a pedestrian network (cars park underground) that connects different points of intensity
– living together, a place of human dimension with a great attention to the balance between individual spaces and a collective framework for a neighborhood life
– shared spaces, offering services and activities related to nature that are not found in traditional cities.
