Landscape design of the City of Gastronomy and Wine

Valuation of existing assets

The project proposes to reintroduce water and nature into the heart of the city. A part of the plot is classified as a Classified Wooded Area (EBC) by its fauna (the pond with a protected toad) and its flora (a plane tree and a line of remarkable lime trees).
The general layout makes it possible to highlight the existing heritage by offering an itinerary exclusively pedestrian. The project aims to offer the inhabitants a pleasant and lively city where it is good to live to move and meet. To achieve this, an eco-district is created to bring a social mix, housing is built in existing historic buildings, the creation of an economic center around gastronomy and a multi-purpose hall.

A suitable vegetation

The vegetation of the CIGV and the eco-district is designed in partnership with the Garden of Sciences of Dijon to create a complete synergy between the Gardens of the Arquebuse (botanical garden) and the new spaces created. These showcase local vegetation but also have complementary elements to the botanical garden (see below), in a desire for pedagogy and biodiversity.
