With this ambitious project, the City of Saint-Germain-en-Laye sought to capitalize on the exceptional potential for development of a 90,000-square-meter zone around its Grande Ceinture railway station. Located at the edge of a forest and close to major transportation routes, the Lisière-Pereire Ecodistrict is a truly urban undertaking: it is a mixed-used development that combines urban and bucolic elements while maintaining a feeling of openness between structures.
The new residential complex will serve as a symbol of the entrance to the city. Visually arresting, an ovoid structure with a series of bow windows will offer accommodations for 100 students and 52 families. A large east-west opening in the façade offers views of the forest and creates a feeling of unity between interior and exterior. Covered in wood paneling, this porch opens onto an inner garden inspired by a clearing in the woods, inviting residents to spend time together, or simply enjoy a quiet moment surrounded by nature.
The use of digital modeling facilitated management of the site’s complex parameters and the challenges of construction, and the use of BIM allowed Patriarche. to meet environmental objectives for the project, which earned the Habitat & Environnement Niveau certification and the energy performance label Qualitel RT 2012-10%.
