A townhouse measuring 173.80m² in an exciting new project of 57 homes designed by the well known British architect Norman Foster who built Nimes' library and contemporary art museum 20 years ago. There are 2 houses this size plus a smaller 2 bedroom one.

  • 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 apartment 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 Houses and Apartments
    The houses and 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 homes are equipped with state of the art home automation commanding the lighting, the roller shutters, the heating and the air-conditioning.

  • Ground Floor
    The house faces East and West. It has a habitable floor area of 174.40m² and the ground floor is laid out as follows: an entrance (7m²) with a guest WC and a 7m² store room, the living room (68m²) with an open kitchen, a master suite (19.46m²) with bedroom and shower room. The house is accessed through the 35m² garden and 2 doors from the living area open onto an 18m² terrace.
