Old Port of Marseille

Marseille France



Redevelopment and replacement of the marina facilities of the Old Port of Marseille.

As part of the overall redevelopment plan for the Old Port of Marseille, the city hired world-renowned architect Norman Foster to redesign this important marine urban space. Poralu Marine shared in the vision for the space and created continuity from the quay to the marina and designed the new floating structures on the water.


Technical traits

As an important public asset, it was critical to design, manufacture and install marine infrastructure that would seamlessly integrate with the touristic and aesthetic standards of the picturesque community in the heart of the City Centre.

The floating docks have a natural wood decking and offer an enhanced appeal that complements the Marseille landscape.
