Crèche and centre for child and mother welfare, Paris

The construction of this crèche and centre for child and mother welfare is part of an urban operation on the former location of the Herold hospital. The building’s relationship to its environment is a fundamental aspect of the project, and is the core of the environmental procedure implemented for this facility. The architectural style presents a limited range of materials: solid brick, concrete and metal used to protect extensive glass windows.

First early childhood HQE certified equipment in Paris, the environmental management system and priority targets (management of upkeep and maintenance, hygrothermal comfort, sanitary air quality) were assessed for two years after delivery .
