The twin-tower residential building of the student hostel “Maison de l’Inde” in the Parisian student quarter “Cité Universitaire” is in addition to the existing complex, offering space for 72 new student apartments and representing an innovation in multi-storey timber construction with its seven floors.

The constructions are designed to a modern concept and fit harmoniously into their surroundings. They are externally clad with red-violet glass mosaic blocks, through which they enter into an exciting dialogue with the adjacent brick buildings.

The supporting structure of the towers itself consists of cross-members and stanchions (skeletal construction) made from laminated timber, ceilings made from laminated timber panels as well as prefabricated external walls. For this project, Rubner Holzbau implemented a “macro construction section” that encompasses the building envelope, the timber construction, the external and internal framework, the cladding and the roof.
