Darwin: the alternative venue on Bordeaux's right bank

When you think of Bordeaux, you think of the Miroir d'Eau, the Place des Grands Hommes, the Allées de Tourny... the whole of the Left Bank! Yet the other side of the river is full of treasures to discover. As the city's economic and cultural hub, this area could be a good alternative to settle down or invest. When you visit properties with our agency, don't miss out on the right bank and the famous Espace Darwin, a remarkable testament to the evolution of the city of Bordeaux!

Located on the right bank of the Garonne, Darwin is much more than just a space; it's a dynamic alternative ecosystem. Since its creation, Darwin has embodied an innovative vision of urban planning, transforming a former military barracks into a place dedicated to the social economy, culture, ecology and innovation. Halfway between work, life and culture, this project reinvents the residential and social experience. Espace Darwin brings together a dynamic and diverse community. The buildings have been carefully preserved and renovated, incorporating touches of modernity and sustainability that make it a unique place.

Espace Darwin offers a real way of life, designed with sustainability in mind. The complex uses innovative technologies to reduce its environmental footprint. From rainwater harvesting systems to solar panels and state-of-the-art insulation, every aspect has been designed to minimise environmental impact while offering exemplary living comfort.

At Darwin, you'll be interacting with a committed community. Residents are invited to take part in a variety of cultural, artistic and sporting activities. From organic markets to art exhibitions and open-air concerts, there's something for everyone! Shared gardens, organic restaurants, sports fields and even a skate park make Darwin a great place to live and work. Darwin also encourages entrepreneurship and innovation, offering coworking and incubation space for young businesses.

Espace Darwin is also a cultural venue where the arts, music and festive events come together. Culture is alive and accessible to all. With its many exhibitions, concerts and festivals, Darwin has become a key player on Bordeaux's cultural scene. Places like the Magasin Général (France's largest organic restaurant) bear witness to this cultural and culinary effervescence.

Living around Darwin means enjoying a perfect balance between city life and nature. The district is dotted with green spaces and cycle paths, offering a true urban refuge just a stone's throw from the city's dynamism. 

Darwin embodies a new way of thinking about the city and community life. This atypical place, at the crossroads of the social economy, culture, innovation and ecology, has become a symbol of another possible city. Constantly evolving, Darwin inspires and shows that another model of society is possible, based on respect for the environment, well-being, solidarity and innovation. In Bordeaux, Darwin is much more than just a place, it's a state of mind, a community, a laboratory of ideas for a fairer, more sustainable society, a magnificent atmosphere in which to live, breathe, smile and share!
