Joia Meridia responds to this wish, following the traditional Mediterranean city. Thoughtful urban planning, state-of-the-art architecture and sublimated landscapes play their full role for a restored quality of life. ” The speech was completed by Olivier Sassi, General Manager of the EPA NICE ECOVALLÉE: “

Joia Méridia embodies the EPA’s ambition to conform to the predominant criteria of sustainability, innovation, landscape integration and high architectural quality. This district is a renewed invitation to a Riviera lifestyle ”. From an urban point of view, the project has three squares, each delimited with a different architecture. Place Méridia occupies a unique place in the project, located in the centre, it is intended to be on a human scale with buildings of 7 to 8 levels to delimit it.

International architecture in Nice Cote d’Azur

Joia Méridia architects applied the concept of translucent minerality. In fact, it is to follow three principles: the first is the art of Mediterranean building, the second of creating a way of life in contact with the climate, the last will be to give a light identity by heights treatment. The roofs of levels R + 6, R + 7, R + 8 and R + 9 are treated with its vegetated soils. These gardens will support the agricultural character of the Plaine du Var. The roofs of the top floors in Nice Cote d’Azur will be covered with photovoltaic panels.

Sou Fujimoto’s tower is characterized by the depth and sensuality of its curves. The balconies are filled with vegetation and are intended to provide freshness to the residents. We will appreciate the smoothness of the balconies, but also the openings that let in natural light. The volume was dimensioned in echoes of Ateliers Jean Nouvel’s Pléiade building.

Technical and ecological masterpiece From a technical point of view, a geothermal power plant will heat the entire macro lot. Thermal needs management will be managed by a dedicated variable flow distribution network. The advantage of managing multiple buildings with different functions makes it possible to transfer heat, so we can use the heat built up in offices to return it to homes in the evening. All these measures fit into a Smart-Grid Ready approach. With regard to housing, it should be noted that 70% of them are crosswise or bi-oriented. Most of the concrete used for the construction is light concrete (low carbon concrete), the joinery is wood or aluminium wood with stone baseboards.

An artistic touch

German artist Carsten will build some great artistic work with a budget of 1% of the cost of the work. This intervention aims to create a symbolic link between the miraculous and the residents of the neighbourhood. An artist collective led by Eric Mangion has been invited to design a participatory work for the duration of the project.
