Developed at Blagnac, near Toulouse, by Bouygues Immobilier, Écrin Végétal is a 190-unit programme comprising:
- 182 one- to five-room apartments,
- 8 detached houses,
- 3 shops.
Écrin Végétal's contemporary and innovative architectural design hugs the triangular shape of the site. The buildings, made from wood, stone and white rendering, are located on the outskirts of a landscaped 3,000m²-park. Most of the units therefore have a superb view over wide green spaces.
Flora is a fundamental part of the new Andromède eco-neighbourhood in Blagnac. Parks take up a third of the surface area, namely 70 hectares of greenery, which the residents of Écrin Végétal can enjoy at their leisure.
With the H&E (Habitat and Environment) label, Écrin Végétal enjoys bioclimatic design that focuses on the management of natural resources and quality materials. Its main features include the best orientations, the use of solar energy, acoustic and thermal insulation, ventilation, etc. Fitted with solar panels that produce a part of the domestic hot water, some of the buildings are certified against the Very High Energy Performance standard. These many features were rewarded in 2009 by the Pyramide d’Argent award given by the French Federation of Property Developers in the Sustainable Development category.
