Esplanade in Quiberon

Urbicus: The project aims to re-establish the link between the city centre and waterfront by creating a large planted esplanade where the market can be held. This element helps link three existing gardens to create a green corridor from the jardin de Brétinio to place Hoche. Plants have been chosen to evoke Brittany’s natural landscapes and signalling panels have been put into gardens to make people sensitive to the preservation of these specific and rare species.
