An intergenerational residence on the way in Ivry Confluences

 

The ZAC Confluences regeneration zone is an urban development of over 1,000,000 m2, launched by the municipality of IVRY in early 2002 to manage the regeneration of the Ivry Port district by way of an ambitious urban development plan. As developer of the ZAC, SADEV94 has been responsible for managing the real estate and all necessary studies for the successful delivery of the building and public space projects.

The works order for Lot 5C1b will be attributed to Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France - Habitat Social in the near future, for delivery in June 2016.

This highly innovative programme is a pilot project, being developed for the first time in the Paris region, which France HABITATION/OGIF and SODEARIF hope to repeat in other municipalities.

The development is part of a wider partnership that the two companies wish to extend in the future.

Sodéarif and Semro speed up development of the Mare Huguet Eco-quarter in Rosny-sous-Bois

 

With the first lot of the ZAC (regeneration zone) launched in the summer of 2013 (a student hall of residence sold off-plan before completion (VEFA) by SODEARIF to Réside-Etudes) the Mare Huguet Providence management company is speeding up its real estate development programme. On completion the "Eco-quarter" will comprise around 500 family housing units and a student hall of residence with 344 studio flats and commercial units.
The land making up lots 2 and 3 was acquired by SODEARIF on 6 May 2014, and the 113 social housing rental units were sold off-plan before completion (VEFA) to I3F.


These sales were achieved with the help of Maitre Yann BRODIN of the Rosny Sous Bois notaries’ office (notary to PMH) and the THIBIERGE practice (notary to SODEARIF and Immobilière 3F).
The architects were the Francois de ALEXANDRIS practice and ATELIER DE MIDI.
The works, to be carried out by Bouygues Bâtiment Île-de-France - Habitat Social, will begin in June 2014 and last 19 months, with delivery planned for December 2015.


The buildings meet BBC Effinergie standards and the A Profile of the Habitat & Environment label.

Sodéarif delivers the Molitor swimming pool

 

The City of Paris launched a consultation in 2007. The project was awarded to a consortium comprising Colony Capital as investor, Sodéarif and ACCOR, for a renovation respecting the original architectural elements and recreating the two emblematic pools, the Bassin d’Hiver (Winter) and Bassin d’Été (Summer).

Colspa, the vehicle created by Colony Capital to conduct the project, signed a 54 year Emphyteutic lease with the City of Paris.

Preservation of the various periods of the Molitor pools’ history as well as the district’s sporting heritage (Parc des Princes and Roland Garros stadia) were the guiding principles throughout the design phase of the project, carried out by a team of three architectural practices: Alain Derbesse and Associates, Jacques Rougerie and Alain-Charles Perrot.
The new building, with an area of 13,000 m2, has 6 levels: 1 basement level, the ground-floor, and a mezzanine topped by three further levels.

Sodéarif worked with Colspa under a real estate development contract (CPI) and the works, carried out by Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France – Rénovation Privée (private renovation), took two and a half years.
Key elements of the project

The project was put together around concepts and key factors identified by the City of Paris at various levels, in particular:
- Cultural, by preserving the identity of the space, based on the listed glass-work and the bathing ethos of the two pools;
- Functional, by retaining the bathing ethos and developing “wellness” as a constituent part of its identity;
- Urban development, by regenerating the site within the footprint of the original building and retaining part of the façade onto the Avenue de la Porte Molitor as well as the entry on the corner of the Avenue and the Boulevard d’Auteuil.

The restaurant and the indoor pool (known as the winter pool), with its rotunda, were spaces where the architectural finishing teams were guided by the need to respect the heritage of this listed site.

The restaurant, which was already present in the original building, has been extended, with restored glass-work being one decorative element.

The summer pool area has been re-imagined so as to incorporate the contemporary extension while evoking the original architectural idiom of the walkways.

In the 5* hotel, a melding of Art Déco with more contemporary Street Art touches has been overseen by designer Jean Philippe Nuel and the three architectural practices.

Samples of all the Molitor’s characteristic architectural elements were made and documented with a view to their recreation, enabling the glass-work and metal safety rails from the winter pool, as well as the period light fittings, to be restored and reinstated.
Finally, because of proximity to line 10 of the Metro, SODEARIF physically separated the hotel from the rest of the structure; an acoustic and anti-vibration buffer was introduced with boxed springs inserted at upper ground level.
