In partnership with the Magizan office, we have been unanimously selected by the jury as the winner for this major project. Resulting from a mandate of parallel study (MEP) procedure.
A new destination
The current site occupied by Avry Centre aims to become a new destination, a place of exchange, culture, leisure and meeting. But it is also the project of a new animated and connected public square in Avry, in Matran, its region and its landscape composed of agricultural fields of the Sarine in the foreground and the Fribourg Pre-Alps in the background.
Concerned about the existing natural setting, the project encourages the creation of new green spaces and reorients the built elements of the site to give it a new identity and guarantee a wide opening onto the wider landscape.
This new public square will have three main features: a new shopping centre integrating various public programmes and services (including a large catering service, a medical centre, a club migros-school and a fitness centre), an aquatic centre open to the public and schools, and a cinema offering a varied programme.
A multimodal hub
The project is at the heart of a new multimodal hub, integrating soft mobility (Trans Agglo), public transport (creation of a new SBB Avry-Matran stop, as well as a TPF bus station) and cars (creation of a P+R car park). It is therefore efficiently connected to the public and private transport network of the Fribourg conurbation.
A new district of attractive and innovative housing will also be created in the space freed up by the former shopping centre. This mixed neighbourhood will ensure a high quality of life through their openness to the wider landscape and their connection to the surrounding nature.
