This project involves designing a dormitory with 180 studios on the site of the Stade de Ladoumègue in Paris’s 19th district. The plot of the building is part of an urban development done by Reichen & Robert architects. By early 2012, the Paris tram will pass by the site, and the goal is to complete the project before the opening in 2011.

background and reason: Invitation sent by Client, competition sponsor and patron: Regie Immobiliere de la Ville de Paris. First stage was to deliver CV. The second stage was to choose the 6 world offices which were invited to competition 2008. The project won first prize.

The major objectives of the project are to design a home to accommodate students, offering them a healthy environment for studying, learning, having fun, meeting… The building must also be «energy efficient» to conjoin with the desire of the city of Paris’s «climate plan» and must begin building by the end of 2010. To achieve these objectives of energy performance and construction timetable the focus was to design a simple, well insulated and ventilated object which will function at its best during all seasons.

The parcel has a very particular configuration; 11m in width and extending approximately 200m long in north-south axis, which foreshadows the importance of processing the eastern facade overlooking the extension of the street, des Petits Ponts. In addition, this street will host the tram and both cyclist and pedestrian walkways. The residence comprises 192 studios. All rooms are equipped with the same principle throughout for better optimization. The key concept point is inside the studios: work on light, air quality and spaces. The accommodations are crossing, allowing for natural light throughout the apartment.

Exterior View

The design of housing was thought to offer comfort, brightness and functionality. The layout is rational and allows modularity. The apartments are mechanically ventilated with a double shift VMC. The breakdown by VMC is much more economical and offers students air and a healthy environment, necessary and vital for the smooth functioning of the individual. The facades will have a major impact on its surroundings because of the length of the plot. The eastern facade of the building looks towards the sport field and is composed of loggias covered in bamboo. They appear on the cover as wooden cocoons and are randomly oriented to diversify the views and rhythm of the facade. The arrangement of the elements creates a dynamic surface and breaks down the scale of the building at the same time.

Another project goal is to achieve a building consumption with very little power, joining the desire of the city of Paris through its “climate plan”. The major objectives of the project is to design a home to accommodate students able to offer them a healthy environment for study, learn, have fun, meet … The building must be “energy efficient” and be built at the end of 2010.

Architectural, urban and  technical proposal
The parcel has a very particular configuration; 11 meters in width and extends about 200 meters long in north-south axis, which foreshadows the importance of processing the eastern facade overlooking the extension of the street of small bridges (des Petits Ponts). In addition, this street will host the tram, a road cyclist and pedestrian walkways. The extension of the street of small bridges also leads to the Canal de l’Ourcq, hence the priority treatment landscaped plot to accompany this urban landscape.

In our case, it is not just a building to integrate into its environment but rather to integrate a piece of street, a facade composed of buildings and landscape.
The residence follows the urban plot which are two blocks divided by sharing landscape garden. Both parts are organized according to a simple and functional frame for a logical and economic optimization. On ground floor are the lobby, the rooms, common areas opened over the course and some studios (accessible for the disabled). Upstairs are all studios and a terrace. The plans are organized according to simple management and maintainance. Also the task was to provide students environment of indoor and outdoor quality with creating the meeting places in which each student can feel good and enjoy the indoor and outdoor landscape. Access to the residence is between the 2 buildings. For security and management reasons, there is only one entry. We used the system of horizontal flow; taking into account technical constraints related to sports complex vis-à-vis the main housing openings. The circulations are naturally lit and ventilated, and allowing East-West views.

The residence comprises 192 studios. Studios are accessible to disabled persons on the ground floor. All rooms are equipped with the same principle throughout the residence for better optimization. There is also studio with two bedrooms on each floor. There are seven in total throughout the building, which used to meet expectations in terms of student housing for couples. The concept key point is inside the studios: work on light and air quality and spaces. The accommodations are crossing, allowing for natural light throughout the apartment. The design of housing was thought to offer comfort, brightness and functionality. The layout is rational and allows modularity. The apartments are mechanically ventilated with a double shift VMC. The breakdown by VMC is much more economical and offers students an air and a healthy environment, necessary and vital for the smooth functioning of the individual. The majority of the studios have a unique outdoor space with loggias which are actually an extension of interior spaces. The loggias create intimate outdoor spaces and offer views of the surrounding neighborhoods.

In view of the targets on energy performance, thermal insulation and soundproofing of the building will be extra efficient. The isolation of the project is done by outside isolation 16cm thick, to reduce heat loss. This insulation thickness makes the building very well insulated, while opening large bay front to let maximum light into the apartments. This insulation is of course both thermal and acoustic proof. The structure of the building next to the wall of the SMR is insulated to prevent heat transfer between the two structures, and of course acoustic insulation for the building site maintenance To avoid the problem of thermal bridges of balconies and loggias we integrate the structure of the elements of broken bridges thermal type SCHÖCK. It avoids thermal losses and especially sustainable balance investment costs over time.
