Text description provided by the architects. Customer’s program was clear and well defined. The building should include an exhibition hall at the ground floor and a loft on the first level; as well as become the image of Maison Passion. The location near by a highly frequented artery inspired the project’s dynamic. The sequence of the vertical wooden boarding became a noise shield frontage designed along the road. The extension’s screen frontage made of thin and spaced out wood, give homogeneity to the existing volumes, heterogeneous and obsoletes, creating a succession of plans more or less translucent. It let see though the background shapes and lift up like a curtain to create the principal entrance of the exposition hall.

The FSC wooden skeleton and isolation (10 inches) make the projet a low energy building. To avoid condensation problems, the whole components of the wall are made with ecological breathable materials. The migration of inside steam to outside is regulated by an hermetic intelligent vapour barrier membrane able to open or close his permeability following the atmosphere’s pressure. We were very carefully to implement health inoffensive materials, likes free-formaldehyde Oriented Strand Board or finishing panels certified only natural plaster.
