The Grand Large District

The Grand Large District in Dunkerque (FR, Quai de la Cunette) is a site where ANMAAgence Nicolas Michelin & Associés build several dwellings between the sea, the docks and the city center. Not only is it a sustainable building project respecting nature’s forces, it’s also an area were priority is given to pedestrians and cyclists. A beautiful boulevard with sitting area’s and well designed bike parkings as a result. Motorized traffic is limited to the access roads behind the buildings. The ultimate way of living?
