Norman Foster in Nîmes

On the Place des Carmes, “La Porte Romaine”, a low-energy BBC residence designed and built by Norman Foster + Partners, offers 57 homes (54 apartments and 3 townhouses), facing the historic heart of Nîmes. The façade gives precedence to concrete and brass. The showroom is located on the corner of Boulevard Amiral Courbet and Rue Colbert. In collaboration with architect Jean Capia, Norman Foster has this time come up with a dialogue between different architectural eras.
