Atelier Vecteur

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.

Nantes is transforming

Nantes is changing to become an even more ecological, inclusive, and dynamic city. To do this, new public works will reinforce our already existing ecofriendly modes of transport: new tram lines, green zones for pedestrians and cyclists, and more. From 2024, these major urban projects will disrupt traffic around Les Machines de l’Île and Parc des Chantiers, with the Pont Anne-de-Bretagne bridge closed off to cars (the bridge will remain accessible to pedestrians and cyclists). Solutions will be offered throughout construction to make it easier for everyone to get around, like: increased frequency of several public transport lines, more Naolib bike-share bicycles, and more parking spots in park-and-ride lots.
