The Fishery

Nantes Island


La Pêcherie (the fishery) is a unique and original creation, designed as part of the development project for the northern banks of the Nantes island, imagined by Base Paysage.

This micro urban facility is the result of a combination of desires and ideas expressed by residents and associations during workshops held between 2014 and 2016 to reconnect with the Loire River, outdoor classrooms, contemplating the fauna and flora, learning about the natural phenomena of the river, improvising shows, taking a nap, fishing…

Free of access, this hybrid object offers a multitude of uses and appropriations, as close as possible to water.

It completes the developments proposed in the riverbank project : a belvedere / guinguette, a skate park, a parkour area, contemplation platforms, playgrounds…
