In this habitat, rooms and storage are scalable and reversible

In new real estate, flexibility is a growing value. More than ever, at a time when every square meter of housing has become particularly expensive, you need to get value for your money during your ownership period, regardless of the growth of the family structure. This is why leading developers and builders are considering apartment sizes with variable geometry. Bouygues Immobilier introduces its series of “configurable lofts” called Lozi in 2022 The Arcia Flex Tandem was preceded by a recently unveiled residence model where apartments can be separate or merged.

Now it is the turn of developer Arbat, a subsidiary of the Vinci Immobilier Group based in Montpellier, to formalize the launch of its evolved housing concept, which must adapt to the changing needs of future owners. It must be acknowledged that society has given considerable depth to all components of housing. It all starts with structure post-beam of these new residences. This construction method makes it possible to erect load-bearing walls only on the perimeter of the dwelling, providing a wide choice of installation of separations and partitions.

“Chef’s Dishes”

From T2, the “Flexi-Plan” formula allows different configurations to be considered, especially on larger surfaces. Thus, within the same apartment and without any additional costs, it is possible to choose a classic kitchen or a version of “Maharaj’s Kitchen”, more central and more widespread. As far as bedrooms go, the rooms that come with the master suite are very easy to transform: an office/guest bedroom, or a large children’s bedroom with play area that can be easily converted into two bedrooms separated by a sliding partition Is. Same scalability for storage where 2m3 of space can accommodate a fully equipped laundry room or work space.

,All these developments are aimed at increasing the intensity of use, Urbet’s president, Jean-Christophe Laurent, underlined. “We are interested in M3, because M² is not a living space.” This logic is also found in optional storage devices on roof rails (view slide show), The reflection continues onto the external space, which should represent at least 15% of the internal surface and benefit from a minimum depth of 2 metres. Here too, this space comes in different versions with or without external storage. Furthermore, the housing promises to be largely bi-oriented, even though this will not be the case for 100% of the apartments depending on their status in the residence.

In terms of impact on prices, the promoter simply emphasizes that at a time when financing remains very fragile, it can only remain “At market prices”…This new concept will begin to come to light this year and next year through the delivery of 8 residences (3 in Lyon, Marseille, Avignon). neem, Pau, Toulouse). The first of them will be marketed in Idron (Pyrenees-Atlantiques) at the end of the month. A certain number of these developments were integrated after obtaining building permits for these works obtained before January 1, 2023, but since then, all other projects have integrated these innovations. It also includes an “upgraded” bicycle room in these accommodations where you can store and repair bicycles, cargo bike, scooter or stroller. Without forgetting the very practical landing equipped with secure private storage for 50% of the apartments. No more need to go down to the basement to get your ladder, your shopping trolley or your rain boots.
