Creation – Portes Mordelaises

Restoration of the Portes Mordelaises: a major heritage site in Rennes

The Portes Mordelaises was the main gateway to Rennes in the Middle Ages. After three years of renovation, the gates have been restored to their 15th century glory, the last time they were rebuilt and enlarged.

Crézé’s mission: to create and install the footbridges, including the drawbridge (see photo). Crézé’s teams also designed the electrical boxes, the benches, the railings and the rods.
These works were carried out in collaboration with the architect Christophe Delmar and the Arcadis firm for the structural parts for the city of Rennes.

The entire exposed structure was sandblasted, primed and finished with a rust-coloured powder coating.
