The Fondation Saint-Joseph Hospital was created in 1875, and has been undergoing transformation for more than 10 years. The respects for the individual house-based structure, the galleries, the gardens, and the preservation of the chapel have enabled the shape of the historical plan to be retained. Since 2005 the Foundation has been undertaking a regrouping project on its site - the Paris Saint Joseph Hospital Group - of 3 establishments: Saint-Joseph Hospital, Notre-Dame de Bon Secours Hospital and Saint Michel Hospital. In the middle of the site the maternity hospital Saint-Joseph is the central building. The task for the architects was to bring up an “immaculate white” and a smooth effect on its façade. It had to be the canvas for the nearby chapel. The realisation of the façade was complex: the electric window-shutters had to be integrated into the outer skin. AIA Architectes have put into practice all the needs with ALUCOBOND®. Now the modern buildings stands out and at the same time integrates into the surroundings. Au cœur du projet, l’édifice abritant sa maternité se devait d’être emblématique. Avec sa forme carrée aux bords toutefois arrondis, il est le bâtiment central du groupe. Le cahier des charges précisait de lui apporter une « blancheur immaculée » et un effet lisse sur ses façades. Ceci, afin de mettre en valeur la chapelle attenante dont il est « la toile de fond ». Mais ce projet présentait une complexité de taille. Dotée de volets amovibles enchâssés mus par des vérins électriques, cette façade hors du commun devait s’habiller avec un matériau capable d’apporter l’uniformité esthétique désirée en même temps que d’assurer le bon fonctionnement du mécanisme de ses volets amovibles. Un enjeu que le cabinet AIA Architectes a relevé grâce aux atouts esthétiques et techniques de l’ALUCOBOND®.
