Accès au logement
A group of residents from Le Bono, initially representing 6 households, decided to gather around common values in 2010 to design a shared housing project. Drafting a Charter starting from a founding text that combines living together, environmental concern and the social and solidary economy provided the common thread for the design and implementation of this project, which bears its name: “the Thread” (“le fil” in French).

Ivry-sur-Seine emergency shelter is located on the brownfield site of the water treatment plant, an extensive 90 000-square-metre parcel belonging to the City of Paris.
The shelter is part of the response to the arrival of around 60 persons per day within intra-mural Paris, women, children and men fleeing war-torn countries or misery. It was designed to shelter 400 persons, families, couples and isolated women for 2 to 6 months, while they apply for asylum. This settlement is temporary, supposed to last 5 years at most.
The contracting authority, Emmaüs Solidarity, wanted to design the shelter like a “village”, to offset its distance from the city. Beyond the reception hall, “streets” serve the different neighbourhoods (dedicated to families or isolated people and couples), as well as the health centre and store.
Distinction: First Work Prize 2017
- sa compacité : une maison de 3 chambres, fonctionnelle de 82m2 qui respecte les fondamentaux d'un habitat de qualité à tout point de vue (air, bruit, confort)
- son coût abordable : la maison a été conçue pour coûter un tiers du revenu mensuel moyen d'une famille de primo-accédant dans des régions fortement urbanisés, soit environ 1 ...
This house aims to demonstrate that it is possible to build a revolutionary house that looks conventional, and on top of that in record time for only 200 euros per square metre more than an RT2012 house.
The key characteristics are:
- Its compactness: an 82-square-metre, 3-bedroom house that’s functional and respects the essentials of quality housing in all respects (air, noise and comfort);
- Its affordable cost: the house was designed to cost a third of the average monthly income of a first-time buyer family in a dense urban environment, that is to say about 1000 euros per month, land included, without any energy expenses since its low energy consumption is fully covered by its production so as to reach an annual balance;
- Its carbon impact: thanks to wood and other top-of-the-range, fully recyclable materials coupled with high-quality technical equipment. This house is genuinely sustainable, can be built within a single day, barely generates any building waste and does not cause any disturbance within the neighbourhood.
It is E+C- and BEPOS-certified
The Santiago Deseado3D simulator, which was handed over to the Municipality of Santiago in June 2015, is a decision-support tool to aid the formulation of sustainable urban policies. Financed by the French government and created by a consortium of companies headed by Artelia, it compiles a large quantity of data on water and waste management, public infrastructure, transportation, the social distribution of inhabitants, telecommunications, etc. to form an interactive map. It then taps into this information to propose assessments of various issues, solutions for optimising urban development and defining integrated, sustainable urban projects.
