La Hêtraie Paris Habitat – Limeil-Brévannes (FR)

The public housing estate La Hêtraie
The public housing estate La Hêtraie, a group of 5 buildings of 10 to 15 floors, is located on the eastern limit of the municipality of Limeil-Brévannes in Val-de-Marne. The entire site, open, is crossed by different users and requires a comprehensive rehabilitation.
Our project for the requalification of outdoor spaces creates a centrality punctuated by plots and green spaces. Several pedestrian walkways intersect in this centrality. Rainwater is collected in rain gardens.
The installation of buried waste container in the outdoor spaces will free premises on the ground floor of the buildings. Their deconstruction makes it possible to create an accessibility for all by the installation ramps up to the elevator steps. The 5 buildings offer a total of 209 units from T1 to T5. The interventions in occupied site and asbestos environment are concentrated on the entrances and wet rooms of the dwellings. Different materials are recovered during deconstructions and reused in the facilities.
