0217 Les Linandes Cergy-Pontoise, Greater Paris, FR
The project is situated in the development area Les Linandes in the new town of Cergy-Pontoise in the Greater Paris area. The operation aims at the general densification of the Parisian suburbs due to the rise of ground prices and the ongoing lack of housing.
The project takes as point of departure a cost efficient low rise high density strategy: two layers of duplex apartments are superposed and organized around a parking garage that is realized 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 parking garage. With this system on one hand a very economic typology for housing is created, on the other hand a spatial quality for all inhabitants is assured with the introduction of the hanging garden that covers the parking underneath.
The program contains in total 75 apartments for sale within a total surface of app. 5000 m2. Approximately the half of the apartments are duplex types with generous double height void spaces.The outer façades are generously glazed with aluminum windows with integrated sun blinds. The closed parts of the façades are plastered.
