The housing shortage in many urban centers and also in the greater area of Paris is a major problem, especially for young people.

To address this problem a new students´ hostel was built in St. Denis, a vibrant and modern city in the north of Paris.  Numerous cultural events and places of interest such as the Gothic Saint-Denis Basilica, the Cité Européenne du Cinéma or the Stade de France characterize the regional cityscape.

One striking feature of the newly constructed student accommodation is the golden façade on the south side of the building.

Architect Alain SARFATI chose H&B architectural mesh for the façade design. The golden façade is not only eye-catching but provides effective sun protection. To meet with the technical demands wire mesh type DOKA-MONO 1851 was selected.
