The design of Hibiscus is based on three planning principles:
- the opening to the city and the university through a street network that promotes soft traffic;
- openness to the Other through intergenerational and cultural social mix;
- and openness to nature with a predominance of green spaces, a combination of plantations and buildings around a vast pond.
This technical work provides an effective solution to rainwater management while enhancing the landscape aspect and boosting the public space. The district Hibiscus offers a mix of housing to meet the different needs and a typology of shops relevant to the area. The Hibiscus Eco-neighborhood is the result of a joint reflection, between the city of Cayenne, the EPFA and its partners, where each element of the neighborhood has been conceived through a global project structuring and integrating into its environment.
