The originality of Port Deauville lies in its architectural program which combines individual housing, organized in duplex and triplex and collective housing. A navigator can thus moor his boat on a pontoon next to his apartment ... The buildings communicate with each other thanks to a network of suspended concrete walkways, like gangways. Jacques Labro and Jean-Jacques Orzoni designed these buildings constructed in 1975. Authors of the Avoriaz station, they were inspired by the constructions aligned on the basin of the port of Honfleur. Signed by the Catalan architect Pancho Ayguavives, the New-Port residence was built in 1992 with its polychrome facades.
