Gecina receives the Équerre d’Argent award for the Paris Nation residence

During a ceremony on November 22, Gecina was honored to receive the Équerre d’Argent award from Le Moniteur and AMC Architecture in the “Residential” category for its Paris Nation project, designed with the agency Mars Architectes.

 The Paris Nation residence, located at 25 avenue de Saint Mandé in Paris’ 12th arrondissement, is the result of a successful combination between the densification of an existing residential complex, a high level of architectural quality, the creation of new landscaped green spaces, and quality of life in the city.

This project involved the demolition of a ground floor building around a paved courtyard in order to build 14 timber-frame housing units.

Paris Nation is exemplary in terms of uses and aligned with current concerns: achieving net zero artificialization, bringing nature in to the city, providing quality housing (light, environments, materials), and ensuring efficiency in terms of its construction and energy consumption.

Delivered in October 2020, the residence has been awarded a number of labels, including BiodiverCity and Biosourcé (level 3) for the quality of the materials used during its construction. Lastly, it is fully in line with Gecina’s CAN0P-2030 plan, targeting net zero carbon emissions by 2030 across its entire operational portfolio.

The residence previously won a Prix National de la Construction Bois timber construction award in July 2021 and a Trophées Séquences Bois 2021 award in September 2021.
