Nomade Architectes : 6 logements

With this building comprising six social housing units in the 19e arrondissement of Paris, Nomade's architects accomplished a double feat: that of carrying out a participative social housing project, which is also labeled Passive House. An exclusivity in the Capital.

First Parisian realization of social housing labeled Passive House, this building of the 19e district designed by the Nomad agency has everything to become a true case study. And yet, before the start of construction in May 2016, difficult to imagine such a success, especially because of the complex site, accessible by a particularly dark and narrow street.

To achieve this result, the architects favored a prefabricated wood structure in the factory, entirely designed with a digital mock-up software. This choice, that of the dry industry, has made it possible to reduce construction time and facilitate access, while offering "A high performance envelope and low carbon emissions at the building"explain the designers. Because here, everything done to allow users to achieve maximum heating savings: double insulation - indoor and outdoor - creeping roof insulated from the outside by polyurethane foam panels, triple glazing, etc.

Perhaps even more interesting: the goal of obtaining the Passivhaus label, although held, has had little effect on the aesthetic line chosen by the architects. Thus, in addition to being efficient, the street façade is designed to facilitate the integration of the project in its environment, as evidenced by the treatment of the base aligned with those of neighboring buildings and that of the roof, zinc, Paris obliges! As for the interior fittings, these were dictated by the future inhabitants themselves, who could visit the site, and even choose the finishes of their apartment ... A case study you are told!
