Based in Paris, with legal representations London and New York City, the practice builds award winning projects all over the world. 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 named “Hyperion”, in reference to the tallest living tree on earth, 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 project is developed under the REVIT software within the VIGUIER agency under BIM standards, to ensure presynthesis between concrete structure lots, timber and fluid from conception stage. The construction will begin in 2017 with a delivery expected at the end of 2019.
