The Alvéoles Saint-Nazaire project by 51N4E in France is one of the winners of the Prix d’Architectures 2019.
In collaboration with BourbouzeGraindorge, 51N4E transformed part of a submarine bunker in Saint-Nazaire into a multipurpose events hall. The commission was part of the City of Saint-Nazaire’s project to reappropriate the World War II infrastructure. The venue is designed as a series of interconnected spaces, each with its own set of distinct qualities, which means that the bunker can accommodate a wide range of events.
This is the first time that the architectural magazine d’A presents a prize for the 10+1 realisations built in France last year.
