A sustainable crèche in Paris, Avenier Cornejo A lot of constructions are being designed and built for the community in Paris right now. One of these projects is the latest work by architecture studio Avenier Cornejo that designed the “Crèche des Orteaux”, which is both visually exciting and environmentally friendly - following the regulations of the Plan Climat de Paris.



Avenier Cornejo architecture studio has designed the “Crèche des Orteaux” for 60 children, as part of the urban redevelopment project of the Fréquel Frontarabie district in the 20th arrondissement of Paris. The project to redefine the rundown urban zone includes 109 housing units for vulnerable groups, venues for a range of activities, a 960-square metre public garden, and a square.





For the “Crèche des Orteaux”, architects Christelle Avenier and Miguel Cornejo started from the restrictions posed by the triangular plot of land to arrive at a design response that fits the site and fully meets the client's brief. Early childhood centres are one of the first places that children discover outside their family unit, so it is essential for the environment to instil a sense of security and protection.



Here, the concrete structure is insulated against temperature extremes and noise and encompasses a spacious courtyard; it is wrapped in a skin of perforated white metal panels. These act as a filter between indoors and outdoors and also create delightful patterns of light inside the crèche; at night it turns into a magic lantern that also stands out as an elegant urban landmark for the neighbourhood.





The project complies with the regulations of the Plan Climat de Paris aimed at reducing environmental impact of buildings. So “Crèche des Orteaux” is certified BBC (bâtiment basse consommation - low-energy building).



Avenier Cornejo has created a construction that makes a marked contribution to the community due to the services offered, but it is also one more example of how architecture for the community can be both sustainable and pleasing to the eye, as a driver of positive social change
