Text description provided by the architects. The Summer Shores initiative aims to create “three unusual stations”, a temporary installation composed of three surprising street furniture along the banks of the Vendée, in Fontenay-le-Comte, France. What does it mean to be “stationary” in public space? Can it lead us to look at our surroundings with a different eye, to share a moment with strangers? YOU’s response comes in three different ways, 3 projects: the Oasis XL, the Net Pier and the Supertable.

The Oasis XL stretches across Place des Marroniers, a once mineral space overlooking the river, covered with lush grasses and tree ferns. In the middle of this pocket jungle, four giant deckchairs emerge, reaching 4.5 m high. Made of galvanized steel, they are covered with colorful fabrics that can accommodate up to 6 people each for a nap, chat, or as a bench to admire the river, the house of the local painter Jean Chevolleau, or the new pedestrian bridge that bears his name. .

The jetty of the Net, downstream of the Vendée, takes advantage of the slope towards the river and has 7 nets at different angles, perfect for cooling off. Inflatable, colorful, and with great views of the town and its church, the Net Pier is signaled by sloping poles that echo the rods of local fishermen, who wear lively fabrics, swaying in the wind like river fish. below.

Supertable draws a winding line along the riverbank, made up of benches, tables and platforms. A triangle-shaped steel structure rests on the grass, supporting planks of tinted larch that form seats at different heights, allowing endless ways to sit, lie down or relax. Whether it’s a picnic for 100 people, a concert or just a few minutes of sunbathing, the Supertable is ready for anything!
