Camille Claudel district Palaiseau

At 20 minutes from Paris, CAMILLE CLAUDEL DISTRICT is located in the municipality of PALAISEAU. It is located at the entrance of the Saclay plateau which enables the link between agricultural lands and urban fabrics. Scientipôle Aménagement has developed a new innovative and sustainable city district in all its dimensions (spatial, functional, energetic, etc). The search for exemplary nature, quality and sustainability has been constant, both in design and in the production and operation management. 1500 homes and 500 homes were built there with services; as well as 12,000 m² of public facilities, 1000 m² of businesses, <10 000 m² of public spaces, 2200 m linear creation roads. The first residents arrived in June 2015.

When Nature invites itself into the city

The layout of the area is based on a strong bias : make the environment the unifying element of a new lifestyle. The layout of the buildings has been designed in harmony with nature. Their size allows each apartment to have unrestricted views of the forest : closer are the appartement blocks , smaller are the buildings. Furthermore, the creation of many soft mobility networks enables a perfect integration of the public space in the environment.

A multitude of services for a new way of life

Innovation proposed by CDU, the Camille Claudel District offers its residents the opportunity to use the services of an integrated concierge service. Receipt of packages or shopping goods, taxi booking, nannies research, dry cleaners, gardeners … The concierge service is a place of stewardship for small daily tasks. This is a Europe-wide unique device! Unlike most new neighborhoods, Camille Claudel is located in a place already benefiting from many facilities. Schools, aquatic center and public transport are available for the future residents. In addition, the project anticipates building a theater, a school of 18 classrooms, a nursery, a medical center and many shops. Much more than an ordinary building project, Camille Claudel District is a new area of the town that will create a strong link between Palaiseau Valley and the Saclay plateau.


After seeing the sociological changes of households – seperate living, aging population, changing living environment household, childcare … Scientipôle Améngement, in consultation with the Mayor of Palaiseau, is seeking to develop innovations that meet the inhabitants’ wishes: the will remain at home for seniors, the will to guarantee the security of their elders for families, the will to have the tools to ensure the safety of small children … Scientipôle Development in France has pioneered the deployment of LIFI technology, through a partnership with EDF Optimal in support of the management of the biomass heating network District Camille Claudel, and other “outdoor” uses are being developed for the whole neighborhood. With its unique experience, they now want to go further with”indoor” LIFI  through the use of its first application – geolocation – which will allow specific applications to provide a range of services and aids to the person covering the developments described above.

In this respect, on december 23rd of 2015, the creation of the Sustainable City Institute was announced during the council of ministers and Camille Claudel district is part of the 11 laureates.
