Hyperion Tower in Bordeaux
Contemporary French Housing – design by Jean-Paul Viguier et Associés, Architects
22 Mar 2016
Design: Jean-Paul Viguier et Associés, Architects
Location: Bordeaux, southwestern France
Jean-Paul Viguier et Associés, in partnership with Eiffage and Woodeum, has won a competition to build a 50-meter high residential tower in Bordeaux on plot 8.4 in the Saint-Jean Belcier district. The project named Hyperion, in reference to the tallest living tree on earth, will be built using a wooden CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) structure.
In environmental terms, the project is representative of a new generation of low-carbon buildings. The lightness and stiffness of solid wood CLT, combined with the strength of glulam and LVL technology takes timber construction to new heights.
Hyperion will serve as a reference for BBCA (low carbon building label) building.
The construction will begin in 2017 with a delivery expected at the end of 2019.
