Body

Operation Magnolias is a CDC Habitat project of  23 collective housing units in Toulouse. It was awarded the ADEME Midi-Pyrénées region’s call for economical building projects. This project was set up within the context of urban densification in order to reduce financial and ecological costs. Constraints stemming from existing buildings and limited space have encouraged the implementation of exemplary environmental initiatives. The materials used are partly bio-sourced and allow prefabrication to limit construction site nuisances. The concrete-wood alloy also brings inertia to the building, allowing it to fight against thermal amplitude.
