Between land and sea, between living garden, belvedere and sky, between mineral and organic: the birth of a new urban center. A+Architecture has just completed the redevelopment of a new district at the gates of Cap d’Agde. The agency has also completed two major facilities which, like two white concrete pearls, signal the renewal of this of this area, the Palais des Congrès and the Casino. A vast gently sloping promenade links them to the port, the heart of this seaside town created by Jean Le Couteur during the Racine mission. Emblematic of the development, the Palais des Congrès has become the resort’s new showcase.
