From the architect. The project is set upon a residual piece of land from the garden of a house situated on Messidor street. The plot communicates with the Mutualité street.

The particularity of this project is its location. It is a semi-detached house which is attached to the corner house. It is about 9.5 meter deep and has a floor surface of 65 square meters.

The house is designed following low consumption principles. The construction relies on existing semi-detached walls in order to minimise heat loss. The facade is well positioned and includes large windows, what maximises the light and sun calories intake. This being said, a protective wooden lathing prevents the overheating that could come from the over exposition of the south-west side.

An insulating coating has been applied on the facade because of its thickness and efficiency to insulate against cold bridge.

The double glazing and window frames choices were motivated by the thermal performances of this house. The house is also equipped with a high output condensing gas boiler.

Great and important type of project. I had a very similar problem my first year in Design Studio with a comperable result except I used metal for the sun screen (lighter in weight with more transparency but not as rich as warm as the wood.)

majchers · December 02, 2010

Interesting concept. Congrats. I am always in favour of new, fresh and contemporary approach instead of questionable 'match' with the surroundings. It rarely works. This project clearly defines itself and prouds itself. And yet if nicely fits with the rest of the streetscape.
By the way – what a bad if not horrible (white) neighbour to the left!

Holcim Awards · December 01, 2010

Nice thoughts on low consumption design.
I would like that wood screen to be operable. It seems like it blocks out a lot of the view and light - and although it prevents overheating in the summer that warmth would be welcome in the colder times of year.
