Energy-intensive building

The highest timber construction in France
Wood, walls and floors, the only concessions are because of regulation. A pioneer of the genre, this set culminates at 38 meters high, with 146 apartments and shops spread over 3 buildings of 8 to 11 floors. An architectural and technical feat, unparalleled to this day, showcasing future-oriented and responsible buildings.

Wood: a construction accelerator
Avant-garde in more ways than one, the realization is particularly for its structure. The set of 3 buildings is almost completely made up of natural and biobased materials, including vertical circulation cores, namely elevators and stairs.
A real technical challenge, raised by Bouygues Immobilier and its partners, after 3 years of research and studies. Paradoxically, it took only 3 months to erect and assemble the structure of this building "demonstrator and eco-responsible". A total of 3,500 m3 of wood will have been required to complete the set.

An iconic building
SENSATIONS is located in the Eurometropolis of Strasbourg known for its bias and urbanistic audacity. Directly connected to Germany, by the bridge of Europe and a footbridge, SENSATIONS is an ambitious project, orchestrated by Bouygues Immobilier, in the heart of the emblematic district of Deux-Rives, taking advantage of the remarkable metamorphosis of the banks of the Rhine.

Comfort and complementarity of uses
Three buildings compose SENSATIONS whose height is between R + 8 and R + 11. 146 residential units from the studio to the T5 are proposed as well as 6 commercial spaces. The apartments are connected and smart. They all have a balcony, terrace or garden.

Owner approach of sustainability

Buildings with passive energy and low carbon, SENSATIONS is composed of mainly natural materials, recyclable, low emission of pollutants. It is powered by a geothermal heat pump. "Building good for the planet, it is good for the economy by creating new opportunities for the wood industry," says Robert Herrmann, president of the Eurométropole. Naturally, SENSATIONS claims to be an exemplary residence, following an economical and ecological approach of tomorrow's housing.

Architectural description

Even when it will not be the highest in France, "Sensations" will remain the "most wood": almost all of its structure is made of this natural material. Including the cores of vertical circulation (lifts and stairs). Like the current floors, the load-bearing walls and the facade, they are made of Austrian KLH's cross-laminated timber (CLT), combined with a glue-laminated beam-to-beam structure. "Only the flights of stairs and the base on the ground floor of recovery charges are concrete, for regulatory reasons," said Christophe Ouhayoun, associate architect of the Paris office KOZ. This set culminates at 38 meters high , with 146 homes and shops, spread over 3 buildings from 8 to 11 floors. Bathed in natural light, a guarantee of well-being and energy saving, the majority of housing are through and systematically offer an outdoor living space: balcony, terrace or private garden.

    The heating is provided by a geothermal heat pump and a collective condensing gas boiler. This couple ensures the energy needs of the building, for the production of heating but also domestic hot water.

    Refreshment by natural-cooling. In the RT2012 calculation engine, the cooling is simulated by a PAC with a COP of 100 and an absorbed power of 20 kW corresponding to the power of the well pumps and circulator.

    Ventilation: Simple humidity-controlled flow type B with low energy consumption. The extractors are placed in roof terraces of the building.

Life Cycle Analysis

    https://www.construction21.org/france/data/sources/users/13317/sortieacv.xlsx

    • The false ceilings are able to eliminate 80% of the main volatile organic compounds (VOCs);
    • floor coverings are made of natural and recyclable materials
    • wall paints are classified as A + low-solvent

    In addition, fire and seismic risks have been anticipated: the technical nature of cross-laminated wood panels (CLT) guarantees the most stringent guarantees

Indoor Air quality

    Representing 9 282m2 of surface, the 3 buildings of SENSATIONS pay particular attention to the quality of indoor air. The building displays a low emission of pollutants, ensuring a healthier environment and respectful of nature. The indoor air quality of the apartments is improved by the use of low pollutant materials covering walls, ceilings and floors.

Health & Comfort

    SENSATIONS illustrates a new art of living, between city and nature. The project embodies perfectly the new habitat modes and ecological issues: "the city by nature"! In a completely redeveloped area, east of the Jardin des Deux-Rives, open to the city, the residence combines architectural excellence and comfort of life. A meticulous work on the comfort of the inhabitant was also realized: the use of insulated biosourced, an air quality improved, a reversible heating floor with a water-water CAP. New apartments are defined by a sustainable and modern approach to comfort. Interiors offer quality services consistent with environmental commitments. Bathed in natural light, the majority of accommodations are through and offer an outdoor living space: balcony, terrace or private garden. The wood structure also offers a perception of comfort different from that of materials such as concrete.

    The project is subject to the noise of a transport infrastructure. The section consists of the following routes: -Avenue du Rhin / Route du Rhin-Avenue of the Pont de l'Europe Along the Rue des Cavaliers, the building has 135 meters of facades on the Avenue de Vitry-le-François. This urban front preserves the island core of acoustic nuisances.

Urban environment

Directly connected to Germany, by the bridge of Europe and a footbridge, SENSATIONS is an ambitious project, orchestrated by Bouygues Immobilier, in the heart of the emblematic district of Deux-Rives, taking advantage of the remarkable metamorphosis of the banks of the Rhine. Bordered by small streets, SENSATIONS is nevertheless subject to the urban and acoustic constraints of two major arteries. To remedy this, the building has 135 meters of facades on Avenue de Vitry-le-François. This urban front preserves the island core of acoustic nuisances.

Building Environmental Quality

  • indoor air quality and health
  • biodiversity
  • acoustics
  • comfort (visual, olfactive, thermal)
  • energy efficiency
  • products and materials

Avec un niveau de hauteur en construction bois inédit en France, SENSATIONS s’illustre par la capacité à répondre aux enjeux climatiques. Ces programmes de logements “ bas carbone “ améliorent nettement la qualité de vie des résidents et leurs voisins.
La structure de SENSATIONS répond à un niveau énergétique passif, souligné par la certification NF Habitat. Ses niveaux de performances répondent aux exigences les plus strictes et avancées : RT2012 niveau Bepas et BBCA niveau Excellence.
Naturellement, SENSATIONS se revendique comme une résidence exemplaire, inscrite dans une démarche à la fois économique et écologique du logement de demain.
