Atelier Vecteur is a collective of architects and creatives, all of whom studied at Montpellier’s École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture, and who see themselves as a laboratory of ideas that can make projects a reality.
For this new project, the architects at Atelier Vecteur are opening Solilab – a space where a social and solidarity economy can flourish in Nantes – in anticipation of the future Jardin du Rail garden and Parc du Loire, both of which are currently in development.
Connecting the Cantine du Voyage and Solilab via flared-out entrances that generously guide visitors through the structure, they frame the space and offer glimpses of how the district will eventually develop and evolve. Designed to be a space for circulation, this passage heralds the profound changes to come for this part of the city.
Atelier Vecteur was founded in 2010 and is based in Gallargues-le-Montueux.
