The Rive de Billancourt sector is located on the trapezium which was once occupied by the Renault car factory; this will be a lively part of the city with a mix of all urban uses. This variety appears not only in the blocks but also in the buildings: some contain housing in the plinth for facilities. 30% of the housing is public development, which favours social diversity; half of the land has been reserved as free public space (gardens and roads); each building has been designed to meet strict requirements regarding energy consumption (the energy coming from renewable sources is between 65% and 75% of total use); and a novel system of water management employing a triple network of drainage for waste water, rainwater draining off the roads and rainwater draining off the roofs which is recycled to be used for irrigation.
a+t have selected four housing projects located in blocks A2 and A3, coordinated by the architects Diener & Diener and the town planner Patrick Chavannes respectively.
