The Lot Petit project involves the construction of a residential block of 186 dwellings on the site of the Saint Vincent de Paul hospital in Paris. The block is made up of five buildings linked by a common base. The objective of the intervention is to find a volumetric and constructive strategy to manage the high programmatic density, with in particular a proliferation of collective spaces. The project is based on a strong environmental commitment with the "Triple Zero" approach covering the entire life cycle of the building.
The construction principles of Parisian housing are reinterpreted here by combining self-supporting 30cm thick ashlar facades on nine levels with a glued laminated wood post and beam framework and concrete cores. The plinth brings together service spaces around widely spaced monumental pillars supporting a thick recovery table. The roof and facades of the shared landings are composed of glass brick panels and aluminium frames inserted in a steel framework. Their attics form glass brick vaults.
