Presence of the Boulle Group at IBSEvent in Paris

Goodbye Home Automation, Hello Smart Apartment!


On Wednesday, November 7th, we attended the 9th edition of the “Intelligent Building Systems” event in Paris.
This edition is part of a process of reflection on the positioning of buildings, in order to become places of services for their occupants.

Conciergerie, security, automation, anticipation of needs throughout life, are all themes that we have been able to address in order to identify the levers for improving our housing.


We identified 4 :



Many exhibitors offered security equipment for housing:
Connected locks
Fire alarms connected, can even open the doors in case of fire
Smart floor, able to detect falls or liquids



What if our home could independently learn our habits?

For example, understand that I turn on the heater from 6am to 7am in the morning, to have a pleasant temperature out of the shower.
Or know that at night all electronic equipment must be turned off because not used.
The light switches may even be obsolete, because each room could determine whether or not to turn on the light depending on the brightness and occupants.

Beyond the concepts specific to each apartment, we can now monitor and predict technical failures at the building level.
Whether in collective boiler rooms, water networks, ventilation networks, automation … there are many applications.



A single person who buys a home, then gets married, has one or more children, changes his habits throughout his life.
Why not integrate movable partitions to reorganize rooms, or even quickly create a new one without having to do big jobs?
Generally, the users are much more creative than the builders, it is time to give them the means to give free rein to their imagination!



Home automation has been around for 20 years, with the initial goal of saving money and therefore consuming less energy.
The paradigm is changing, because in parallel with a more rational consumption, we have the possibility to produce energy in each building, even to recover energy, for example in gray water.
Although pioneering in positive energy buildings (see, the Boulle Group continues to improve to produce more virtuous buildings.


And you, how do you see your next home?

News about La Co-Conception

After obtaining the building permit this summer, it is now purged of all recourses.

First building from La Co-Conception Immobilière, this beautiful adventure of housing 2.0 began in 2017 with the design of 17 apartments in the heart of the eco-district of the ZAC Danube in Strasbourg. The name of the residence: Future Composed !

Commitment of the Co-Designers

Today, the phase of Co-Conception is completed, the purchasers sign their reservation contract and commit individually for the acquisition of their apartment. The remaining apartments will be offered for sale.

The synergy of ideas has led to a project designed by and for its future users, we see it well, especially thanks to the presence of shared spaces such as a roof terrace with shared gardens and a workshop. DIY.

Work will start at the end of 2018! The architectural firm Urbanetic and its director Carine Jund will be in charge of the realization of the work until its delivery.


What is La Co-Conception Immobilière ®?

La Co-Conception Immobilière is this collaborative project in which the prospective buyers participate in each step of the design and realization of their future housing!

Our proposal is made before the building permit is filed and precedes a classic and secure Sale in the State Future Completion (VEFA) contract.

Interview of Alain Jund – Inauguration of the Waldhorn Residence

Thursday, October 25, the inauguration of the Waldhorn residence in the eco-district of the Cronenbourg Brewery.

This residence has an innovative renewable energy production technology: a geothermal boiler on the Rhine water table, combined with heat recovery on extract air and greywater that allows savings in heating and water consumption. hot.

The project is labeled “Positive Energy & Low Carbon Building”!



During this inauguration, we were able to ask some questions to the Deputy Mayor in charge of urban planning Mr. Alain Jund :


Today we are opening the Waldhorn residence in the eco-district, it’s a success, and you’re a big part of it … What was your role in this project?


Alain Jund: As Deputy Mayor in charge of urban planning my role has been to develop this neighborhood and its content, that is to say an exemplary neighborhood in terms of energy, focused on biodiversity issues, the use of public spaces, and also a neighborhood that allows us to meet the challenges of tomorrow on climate, and energy savings

The Waldhorn project is unique and the only one in France to date. We have every interest in developing this type of housing because they are common sense projects that make it possible both to save on the bills of future residents and to become more independent in terms of energy. This virtuous circle allows the reuse of the energies produced so as not to lose anything.


Following the visit, what did you like the most about this project?


Alain Jund: What impressed me is the technical investments put in place, which will be managed by an after-sales service for the management and maintenance of this infrastructure. What I hope is that from this example, there are other projects of this type that can proliferate in the future.


It is in this sense that you imagine housing in 5 years?


Alain Jund: Even beyond that, because the fact of being able to reuse the hot water of the showers, the washing machine and the hot air will allow a sober use of the energy. This is good for the inhabitants, for the planet and also for the neighborhood.
