The Recueil Estate
The Recueil estate at Villeneuve d’Ascq regroups individual houses covered with tin-plated steel Uginox Patina.
The Recueil estate at Villeneuve d’Ascq regroups individual houses, from 3 to 5 bedrooms, ranging from 88 to 144 m², with garages and private gardens. These houses feature contemporary bioclimatic architecture and enjoy a privileged location near the metro railway and the major highways.
The materials used include wood-effect metal siding or Trespa panels, decorated with vertical windows, exterior joinery made from exotic wood types and roof-coverage from tin-plated steel. They contribute to making the “Recueil” estate an avant-garde and pioneering programme.
Thanks to wide openings, generously sized sliding glass-doors, the houses benefit from optimal brightness.
The choice of a metal roof-covering was a logical one based on the architectural design of the building.
Tin-plated steel was chosen:
- It’s easy to work with
- It has a low dilation coefficient which permits the use of 20m long bands without the risk of the sections deforming, thus maintaining a neat and stable architecture
- The colour of its patina allows a perfect harmonisation with the colours of the rest of the building.
