Co-Design of Citizen Spaces
About this project
The CLIC Bordeaux-Cartierville has newly partnered with Espaces temps to receive support to conceptualize citizen spaces for the future Bordeaux-Cartierville community centre, which will be created in a building that belonged to the Sisters of Providence.
Through a series of consultations, the Bordeaux-Cartierville community described its expectations for this space.
- Community members want access to neutral, free and inclusive spaces that are open year-round, seven days a week.
- They want places where they can meet, talk, relax, and have a coffee.
- They want to use this space without having to take part in planned or structured activities.
This vision has led to exciting design challenges. To create a suitable space, Espaces temps and the CLIC Bordeaux-Cartierville will reflect on the following questions:
- What does the community look like and how will people interact with these spaces?
- What meaning will the community give to these new spaces?
- How can we create spaces for different levels of involvement, from relaxation to active participation?
- How can we make these spaces user-friendly?

Creating a citizen space means engaging with a community to meet its needs and expectations.
