Student residence

 

Solutions & Technologies

Inaugurated in September 2014, the new Porte de Vanves student residence boasts 67 accommodation units in a bow-shaped building that meets the architectural constraints of a small, triangular building plot.

 

Description

The street-facing facade consists of several superimposed flat walls, giving the apartments a variety of viewpoints. The dimensional options provided by the Ductal® Cladding solution were used to address the building's complex pattern layout. Large panels have been used, some of which include a vertical or horizontal setback to close the complex's thickness on the edges of the flat walls.

This 1,000-odd metres of facade is dressed with a hundred or so white, smooth-textured Ductal® Cladding panels, manufactured to an architectural formulation.

The panels have been given a water repellent coating that guarantees the facade's aesthetic durability in a city setting subject to heavy traffic.

Use of a High Environmental Quality approach has ensured the award of the "Low Energy Building" Quality label. The wall's thermal performance is provided by an External Thermal Insulation solution; the protective layer of Ductal® Cladding contributes to the overall durability and sustainability.

Les Collines de l'Arche

Built in the 1990s, the 70,000 m2 building was clad with a stone whose durability had deteriorated over time. The renovation of the building also allowed a thermal optimization of the facade.info_
