179 new housings and shops completed

  The project is located in Taverny, in the neighbourhood of les Sarments which has been for several years the subject of renewal and rehabilitation campaigns. This project's issues concerned its integration and the urban fabric of the city, with a real work on public spaces surrounding the new buldings; but also the private outside spaces in the central garden, thanks to a landscape design that allows to obtain a maximum privacy for the inhabitants.

Visiting Taverny’s construction site

Our projet's construction site in Taverny, led by AHA's construction director, is coming to an end, its delivery is due for this summer.

The project develops 179 housings and shops. Classic codes of the architectural composition are re written in a contemporary way. The set of hights, of roofings, or the alternating of balconies and loggias, participate to the creation of a rythm of the frontage. Chosen materials are simple and sustainable (roof made of zinc, underbody made of grey anthracite stones, loggias made of stained concrete), and underline this composition work, whilst providing quality and durability to the buildings.
