THE 21st CENTURY ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY CAMPUS
Hotels, restaurants, businesses and car parks, the Ecotone project will be built in the Trois Moulins district of Antibes, in Sophia Antipolis technology park.
Compagnie de Phalsbourg provided a competition-winning design to develop the 3 Moulins site in Antibes.
In partnership with Xavier Niel and in association with Ateliers Jean Nouvel, OXO (Manal Rachdi) and AAFB (Foussat Bapt architecture studio), the project involves the creation of 40,000m² of tertiary activity space, hotels and amenities within Europe’s largest technology park, Sophia Antipolis.
Ecotone Antibes has three aims:
To become the gateway and the new tertiary image of Sophia Antipolis
To create a 21st century campus model in France
To become the centre of excellence for biomimicry in the South of France
The infrastructure will include:
32,000 square metres of office and co-working space
A 4* hotel with 120 rooms, a swimming pool and spa (7,000 square metres)
1,200 square metres of shops and restaurants
750 parking places
Surrounded by 27,000 square metres of parkland, Ecotone Antibes will be the most vegetated building ever built. Fully integrated into its surroundings, Ecotone will eventually accommodate approximately 3,000 people.
The model was presented for the first time in the context of the International Market for Real Estate Professionals, MIPIM, held in Cannes.
