Pointe de Trivaux, Meudon (92)

Housing, 2018

The planned Pointe de Trivaux eco-neighbourhood represents the renewal of an entire sector of Meudon.

 

With its high-quality environment – the Forest of Meudon is one of the great green lungs of the Paris Region – Meudon is an attractive town with a thriving economy. The neighbouring Vélizy-Villacoublay hosts a large number of company head offices and constitutes the northern part of the Paris-Sacaly scientific and technological cluster, an important employment hub for the Paris Region.

The town enjoys an advantageous situation, benefitting from a good road network, with the N118 leading directly to Paris and Paris-Saclay, which is connected to the A86, the Paris ring-road.

Furthermore, the recent introduction of the T6 tram line linking Chatillon-Montrouge to Viroflay serves a large part of the town, including the Pointe de Trivaux.

Architectural History

Meudon-la-Forêt is a neighbourhood of Meudon that has marked architectural history.

Designed by the architect, Fernand Pouillon, in 1961, the development has undergone numerous changes, all of which have respected the architect’s initial intentions, guaranteeing the coherence and quality of the neighbourhood, inspired by the lakes and parks of Versailles.

Pouillon’s plans emphasised sun-facing orientations, the use of cut stone, clear forms, and monumental spaces.

The Pointe de Trivaux is located on the edge of the Meudon-la-Forêt. Covering around ten hectares, it is largely made up of ageing facilities.

Our plot is situated on the border of a number of communes in three different départements.

Vélizy, Clamart and Meudon-la-Forêt all provide very different urban fabrics.

To the south-west, the urban setting is characterised by relatively low standalone houses with their own gardens.

To the south, we find a large ensemble of residential low-rise apartment buildings. In Vélizy, the Avenue de Villacoublay hosts a number of office buildings.

To the north, Meudon boasts a large sports complex.

One of the challenges was to develop a coherent development in a disparate urban fabric without creating ruptures or discontinuities.

The eco-neighbourhood project represents an essential stage in the evolution of Meudon, an attractive town with a high quality of life.

The Pointe de Trivaux will be a mixed neighbourhood featuring sports and leisure, economic activities, green spaces and housing.

Our residential buildings are equipped with beautiful terraces, fine views, and large windows.

Featuring materials such as stone, white concrete, and polished concrete, they resonate with the buildings designed by Fernand Pouillon.

One of them, in the form of a reversed E, already under construction (delivery set for early 2020), will feature 412 units, including a student residence and a residence for senior citizens that will provide a wide range of services, from a sports hall to a hairdressers.

The other, a “bow building”, will have a strong identity, with contemporary, curved volumes.

The spaces will be comfortable and full of light. The hearts of the islands will be very lively and the roofs will be planted.

The Pointe de Trivaux will be a generous, inter-generational neighbourhood articulated around a convivial square with stops serving two tram lines. In other words, a place with a lot of life to it.

The “eco-neighbourhood” units will be ecologically virtuous, enabling residents to make energy savings by reducing electricity and heating costs.

Particular attention is paid to optimising transport infrastructure: pedestrians and cyclists are encouraged with a view to ensuring a calm environment for residents; there are parking places designed to limit traffic and boost car sharing; numerous bike shelters are available; residents are afforded easy access to the tram lines; and a number of parking places are reserved for electric cars.   

The Pointe de Trivaux is part of the “100 Innovative Ecological Neighbourhoods” launched by the Paris Region, a programme that rewards “lively” neighbourhoods “where people from the Paris Region will be happy to live, combining residential units, jobs, transport infrastructure, services and nature, the objective of which is to reduce our ecological impact”.
