Hypérion - Residential Tower
"Hypérion, the highest living tree"
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 is named “Hyperion” in reference to the tallest living tree on earth. This 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.
