BDP Landscape

BDP Landscape has won a major international competition to redesign the former ship repair yards at the port town of La Seyne sur Mer near Toulon.The project, a collaboration with French practice Groupe 6, will occupy a 2km site on the Mediterranean coastline. It will create an urban park, to include a quayside promenade, an esplanade linking the town centre with the sea, and a sequence of small 'follies' for retail and leisure use. The park will be structured with a series of sweeping walkways and tree-lined avenues.The masterplan also identifies locations for several cultural buildings including a theatre, 'mediathéque', museum, hotel and casino.A new tramway will pass through the park connecting Toulon with La Seyne sur Mer and linking to a new exhibition site. Work is expected to start on site later this year.
