What if you could live in a Former Soccer Stadium in Nice?

French architects are turning the former Soccer Stadium of OGC (Nice) into a commercial and residential space with a healthy amount of landscaped greenery. The design firm Maison Édouard François’s, in collaboration with ABC Architects, plans to this soccer stadium, in France, in a great commercial and living space. The idea was top prize in a competition to transform the venue into a mixed-use complex distinguished by plant-covered façades. Let’s take a look of some images of this incredible place!

For the structures, the architects at Maison Édouard François took Nice’s naturally hilly surroundings as design inspiration, crafting a series of undulating structures raised to different heights via supporting columns. This essentially leaves the complex’s entire grounds available, allowing residents to walk underneath the buildings and access the park directly from the street, making the project not only a rejuvenation for the derelict stadium but also a place for the community’s residents to enjoy. In addition to the landscape, the architects paid homage to the surrounding architecture, employing traditional Niçois materials like white stone and wood used frequently in neighboring villas.

On the whole, Maison Édouard François’s design will infuse a very urban quarter of Nice with some much-needed greenery, a perk perhaps best described by the firm on its website as “offering the city a new green lung.” The project is scheduled to be finished in 2017.
