PONTOISE HOUSING PROJECT

The initial project faced serious challenges in terms of cost and construction deadlines. The collective Plan01 (Jean Bocabeille Architecte, Atelier du Pont, Ignacio Prego Architectures, Koz, and Philéas) , which consists of 5 architecture firms, decided to respond in chorus to the question, “How do you bring architectural quality and diversity to a large-scale building within a tight deadline and at a construction cost of 1,450€ /m2 (of habitable surface), parking included?” Answers : - collective terraces instead of individual balconies, - underground parking that was nevertheless open-air and surrounded by greenery, - a building width that corresponded to the parking area’s structural frame (15 meters), - a sculpting of volumes that resulted in different heights; this limited the number of elevators and guaranteed that all the housing units would run across the whole floor or at least face more than one direction, - interior insulation using a coefficient of an optimal building shape and a thermic concrete manufactured on site.
