0217 Les Linandes Cergy-Pontoise, Greater Paris, FR
This project is situated in the Les Linandes development area in the new town of Cergy-Pontoise, France, in the Greater Paris area. The operation aims at the general densification of the Parisian suburbs due to the rise of land prices and the ongoing lack of housing.
The project takes as its point of departure a cost-efficient, low-rise, high-density strategy: two layers of duplex apartments are superimposed and organised around a car park that is realised on ground-floor level. While the lower apartments are accessed from the perimeter of the block, the upper apartments are accessed from the inside of the block through a hanging garden on top of a car park. With this system, a very economical typology for housing is created on the one hand, while quality space for all inhabitants is ensured on the other hand with the introduction of the hanging garden that covers the parking underneath.
The programme encompasses 75 apartments for sale within a total surface area of approximately 5,000 square metres. About half of the apartments are duplex types with generous double-height void spaces. The outer facades are generously glazed with aluminium windows featuring integrated sunblinds. The closed parts of the facades are plastered.
