The operation occupies a strategic position in the Tremonteix eco-district, above Clermont-Ferrand.
It concerns three lots, dedicated to social housing and carried out for Auvergne Habitat.
They border the square, in the heart of the new district.
The project articulates different urban atmospheres by proposing various typologies with collective housing on the square side, intermediate housing on the south side, and individual housing to ensure the transition with the neighbouring pavilions.
The complex offers a good density while preserving the porosity of a system that allows views, landscape and public space to pass through the operation.
A pedestrian alleyway crosses the project and serves the various buildings.
Ultimately, 13 buildings make up this 52-unit housing program.
The architectural writing accompanies this fragmentation by deliberately marking the volumes and roofs of the different blocks to form a village aggregation, in reference to a model that is more rural than urban.
Wood construction supports this architectural positioning.
Among the main devices implemented are the following:
The wood species used are spruce for solid wood framing, pre-stained Douglas fir for siding, pine for exterior decking, finger-jointed pine for frames, and spruce for CLTs.PRIX RÉGIONAL CONSTRUCTION BOIS AUVERGNE RHÔNE ALPES 2018
