This project for the construction of a 92-unit timber frame residence Althéa was developed by Woodeum and designed by the architects Nicolas Laisné and DREAM Dimitri Roussel.
CALQ brought its experience in wood construction to the project, as site manager.
Located in the Yvelines department, close to the Meudon forest, this complex of two six-storey buildings comprises 66 housing units for buyers, 26 social housing units, two basements and a shop, in the heart of a 2,200 sqm. landscaped park.
The floors, facades and walls were made of wood CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) to reduce the carbon footprint. The façade complex, with external thermic insulation and rendering on six floors, required a special technical approval.
The very bright flats have large mixed aluminium/wood windows and large watertight balconies with boarded floor and planted planters. Their load-bearing metal structures on three levels create a slender silhouette. On the fifth floor, a setback in the facade allows for the creation of large terraces and on the sixth floor, pergolas create a play of light and shade.
Wood is also present inside each dwelling for the well-being of future residents, with an exposed wooden wall, parquet flooring and visible wooden ceilings on the ground floor.
The roof houses 13 solar panels to produce hot water for the social housing.
