THE CLOCHE D’OR AT A GLANCE

The construction launch of the new Cloche d’Or residential area is the fruit of a long process of urban planning. The genesis of this new urban residential quarter development in Cloche d’Or, is to be found in the southern extension strategy, which was established by the City of Luxembourg, and determined together with the government about a decade ago. An “urban residential quarter”, means living, working and consuming as well as recreation activities.

The developers of the Cloche d’Or project have taken this global and allinclusive approach in their development, and have given absolute priority to day to day life within the community and to the quality of community life, while at the same time adopting a strict philosophy of durable and sustainable development in all the domains. The Cloche d’Or’s ambition is to become your new living residential area.

A PART OF A CITY

The new Cloche d’Or residential area, which will be linked directly to the citycentre and which will have access to the principal highway connections, will going to accommodate a commercial centre, whose scale will satisfy the demands of the residents, the local workers, and the young students who are attending the Lycée Vauban the French secondary school in Luxembourg.

The commercial centre will be perfectly integrated into the global architectural aesthetics of the area. Inside the centre you will find 130 shops, with guaranteed diversity for all sorts of choices and tastes, as well as restaurants and bars. The new residences will be grouped around an “area centre”, which will be surrounded and enlivened by local businesses. The apartments in the residences will be going to be oriented towards the open spaces in the park or the ecological corridor.

“ The Cloche d’Or is about to become the new reference for businesses. ”

A SUSTAINABLE AND GREEN AREA

socio-cultural, technical and procedural qualities has resulted in the award of a “gold” pre-certificate for the entire site, which is unprecedented in Luxembourg. The attention given to sustainability is also manifest in very concrete achievements.

Green spaces

Up to 85% of the Cloche d’Or’s heating needs will come from an urban heating network, which means that the heat will be produced by a waste incinerator in Leudelange. To make up the other 15%, a cogeneration plant is being constructed within the zone.

In an effort to evaluate and improve the zone, the Cloche d’Or undergoes rigorous monitoring by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen (DGNB – German society for sustainable construction). The analysis of the ecological, economic,

An ecological corridor will link the new park with the Weierbach stream to the outlying natural space on the periphery of the project, in order to contribute to the biodiversity and thereby encouraging ecological resilience.

The Cloche d’Or strives to put nature at the heart of the project.

14

The ecological corridor The project will be structured around two federative axes: the creation of a continuous natural space, rich in biodiversity, where water and vegetation are omnipresent, and where access to the site, in a new urban form, is adapted to this innovative neighbouring quarter. DGNB Certificate The Cloche d’Or obtained a hands down 84%, “gold” certificate, which is the highest existing level and a hallmark of quality, high-handedly (84%). The residential and other buildings of the area guarantee the best possible comfort, reduced energy costs and superior construction quality.


A green environment, which allows relaxation or physical exercise in a natural setting, is an important asset. Alongside boulevards and plazas, surrounded by trees and plants, the biggest park in the city will be created in the Drosbach valley. This stream will be returned to its natural state and will also supply the ponds. In this way the park will not only be conducive to walking and relaxing, but also to bathing and barbecues which can feature on the residents’ recreational program.

15


PUBLIC TRANSPORT Regarding the guaranteed mobility of the residents, the ambition is the same as for the conception, adjustment and construction of the project in general. Why compromise, when you can achieve the maximum? The city of the Luxembourg and its surroundings, with their charming appeal, their beauty and characteristic features, make it a place where it’s good to live. However, this relatively small European capital, is facing an increasing influx of residents, and so the local and national authorities have thoroughly revised the different concepts of mobility from top to bottom, particularly as regards public transport. These new ideas aimed at improving the transportation flow of people have been fully integrated into the Cloche d’Or project. The arrangement and planning of the Cloche d’Or area has ensured a direct and

fast access to the motorway connections, in order to facilitate travel towards the north and the south of the country. The transport needs of the German, Belgian and French cross-border workers have also been taken into account. Together with the administration of the City of Luxembourg, the project’s engineers and architects managed to elegantly combine the structures, allowing the passengers using the bus, the tramway and the train, to be provided with all the useful and convenient connections. The new inner suburban railway station in Howald will be a stone’s throw from the Cloche d’Or and about five minutes away from the Central Station in Luxembourg City.

SOFT MOBILITY

“ The priority lies in alternative modes of transport.” LE QUOTIDIEN

18


Soft mobility has been close to our hearts and interests, so planning cycle paths, was a pragmatic consideration, but at the same time we took into account the needs of the end-users in relation to the national network. In addition, all the underground car parks, whether public or private, will be equipped with electrical charging stations.

In order to ensure maximum comfort and quality, as well as exceptional conviviality and fellowship, increased mobility solutions have been developed for the residents, permitting easy and sustainable ways of travelling, which also correspond to their rhythm and way of life.

LOCAL BUSINESSES

On the ground floor of each residential island, there will be a large number of easily accessible businesses. Part of our global concept is to have the possibility to shop close to home, without having to rely on a car or having to walk far.

“ Entertainment, leisure and nature make up a large part of the of the ‘Ban de Gasperich’s {Cloche d’Or}” development.” LUXEMBURGER WORT

We have made sure that the businesses being set up in the Cloche d’Or match the residents’ expectations, and ensure that their daily requirements are covered to a maximum. A local business, that relies on human contact contributes to the attractiveness of this vibrant and lively area.

A contemporary commercial centre that focuses on an aesthetic and airy environment. The developers of the centre managed to create a dynamic and bubbly universe, in which to discover its great variety of offers at your own leisure. Some 130 shops gravitate around the hypermarket Auchan. In a warm atmosphere, you will be able to discover the novelties of fashion, beauty and health, as well as wellness, culture and leisure, and equipment domains. From the restaurants, bars and cafes of your choice, it will be possible to enjoy an exceptional view towards the city of Luxembourg.

An AAA accommodation uses 4 times less energy than most apartments

A homogenous underfloor heating saves 15% of energy.

Triple glazing window insulation reduces the heat loss by 40%.

Regulating and programming the temperature within the property can save between 10% and 25% of energy consumption.

36


RESPECTING THE ENVIRONMENT

The AAA class properties are at the pinnacle of current technology with regards to energy usage and consumption. The entirety of the properties of the Cloche d’Or’s residential quarter block A, will be energy class AAA certified apartments, with “low energy consumption”. This means that an AAA apartment consumes approximately 70 kWh/m2/ year, whereas the majority of existing buildings use approximately 250kWh/m2/ year, which is close to four times more. Furthermore, you can benefit from government subsidies and bank loans with favourable interest rates, if you purchase a property at the Cloche d’Or. The services of “Aides au Logement” set up an office called ‘Info’Logement’ in Luxembourg City, in order to supply information and useful tips regarding different housing benefits, in particular for the construction and acquisition of a property (with or without transformations). Please find more information on : www.myenergy.lu

THE NATURAL STONE USED FOR THE FACADES

38


The Kanfanar stone is a limestone which is not affected by frost, a hard and solid rock, beige in colour with fine grains. This rock is extracted in Istria in the northern coastal parts of Croatia, in the Kanfanar commune. It is prepared and treated a few kilometres from its place of extraction, in the Pazin commune. This limestone, is dense and homogenous in structure, with more or less dark coloured fossils in it, which can appear in variable proportions depending on the choice of stratum. Used in large scale projects in France, in the south as well as in its Alpine regions, and therefore subjected to extreme weather conditions, the Kanfanar natural stone has proven its exceptional resistance and stability.

39


ECOLOGICAL EVEN ON THE ROOF

40


Plant-covered roofing needs an accurate know-how and specific skills. All the roofs of the Cloche d’Or quarter are covered with greenery and vegetation. This innovation imparts an entire panoply of advantages, whether they be aesthetical, ecological, in regards to health or simply in regards to well-being and comfortable living standards. There are also a number of benefits for the biodiversity of the area. A part of the local wildlife will find substitute habitats, and a natural equilibrium can be restored. The plant-covered roofs also permit a reduction of carbon dioxide (CO²) emissions, due to the surplus of oxygen (O²). They also have properties that provide protection against thermic shocks, which reduce temperature variation by up to 40%. As well as being waterproof, and providing sound and thermic insulation, the plant-covered rooftops also offer an undeniable aesthetic advantage to the area, where living space and nature coexist in symbiosis. Thanks to this innovation, the Cloche d’Or residences will benefit from an improved air quality, as the plants filter dust and other pollutants. The plant-covered roofs procure a calm and healthy environment, good for the mind and the body, an urban-nature harmony, a serenity which is ideal for the projects and activities of family life.

THE LOGGIA, A NEW LIVING SPACE

The loggia is a transitory space between the exterior and the interior, which gives you a flexible and adaptable space for between the seasons. This way, it can be a summer kitchen as well as a winter garden. Your comfort is extended towards the outside. It can become a veritable living space and it can enlarge and open up your property.

The loggias of the Cloche d’Or’s apartments also allow you to bring the green space into your own home, thanks to the splendid views outside. This in-between-space brings in light and freshness. It is an extension of your living space, and it lets you take advantage of being outdoors, while at the same time remaining inside.

INTERIOR ATMOSPHERE

To enhance your new home, our architects have researched and focused on the matching of materials, as well as their harmony and quality. For the Cloche d’Or residences, the materials, the equipment and the technical details have been chosen in perfect symbiosis between the elegant and useful. The understated doors, the triple glazed windows, the underfloor heating, the bathroom fittings and tiling are the elements with which you are most in touch with in your home. In appearance and to the touch, the selected materials display a timeless aesthetic and great quality of workmanship, and they will serve in

46

their daily functions for many years to come. Nowadays, the kitchen and the bathroom, where you start and end your day, need to be veritable centres for your personal well-being. In order to perfect our mission to create properties where you can really feel at home, the clients (customers) of the Cloche d’Or have the opportunity to be advised by specialists while making their final choices for the materials, the sanitary (bathroom) equipment and the tiling.
