A four bedroom apartment measuring 131.85m² in an exciting new building designed by the well known British architect Norman Foster who built the Nimes' library and contemporary art museum 20 years ago.

  • The Location
    The residence is located on the Place des Carmes facing the historic heart of Nimes. It is on the tree-lined boulevard which encircles the ancient city between three prominent historic structures: the Porte d'Auguste - the Roman gate to the city - the church of Saint Baudile and Nimes scientific university.

  • The Residence
    The architect has designed the facade of the building to integrate and complement the nearby historic buildings choosing shaped concrete and limestone panels and respecting the height of the 19th century Science Faculty building that it adjoins. The robust facade echoes the Roman arena nearby, with its geometrical openings and deep shadows. In all there are 54 apartments of varying sizes and 3 townhouses. Behind the building is a lush green courtyard. There is a hi-tech system of home automation and security.

  • The Apartments
    This is a 4 bedroom apartment but there are also smaller ones with 2 or 3 bedrooms and 3 townhouses. The apartments will all have tiled floors, central heating and air-conditioning. The bathrooms are equipped with Jacob Delafon bath, shower and washbasins and have heated towel rails. The apartments are equipped with state of the art home automation commanding the lighting, the roller shutters, the heating and the air-conditioning.

  • The Terraces
    Spectacular views of the square from the wide private terraces with galvanized steel shutters. These allow residents complete control over natural ventilation, light control and privacy, also making the terraces a flexible, personalised space between the outdoors and the indoors.

  • This Apartment
    A four bedroom apartment on the 4th floor with a south-facing terrace overlooking the square and a north-facing terrace looking onto the garden. It has a habitable area of 131m² and includes an entrance hall with a guest WC, a living room (54m²) with an open kitchen and store room (4.21m²), a master suite (bedroom 15.5m²) with its own shower room (4m²), 3 other bedrooms (15.5m², 11m² and 9.5m²), a shower room with WC and two terraces (15m² and 13m²).
