French for big

Le Grand Large, part of the Dunkirk marina in northern France, is a mixed-use development by architect Agence Michelin & Associés and might be a good place to grab some moules after a visit to the Dunkirk Memorial Museum commemorating the evacuation of nearly 340,000 Allied troops here from 26 May to 4 June 1940. It’s less hair-raising on the beaches now; people choose to hang around rather than look for the fastest way of getting off them. This leisurely feel is reflected in the ‘neutral, classic tones’ of the development’s Cobble Stone and Timber Bark HardiePanel cladding, turning a calm face to the onshore gusts.
