Open Air Housing
This triplex house responds to the owner's desire to have two rental units attached to his own home. The architectural bias consists in using the maximum possible constructive influence of the land horizontally and vertically. The result is a monolith with a wooden facade drilled rigorously with several generous openings in height on the dimension of the cladding panels (2.40m). On the last level, these cutouts give onto "open-air loggias". The two rental units are located on the street. The bedrooms are on the first level and the living rooms are arranged on the last level: they open entirely onto the loggias. The owner's house and office face the garden. The wooden shutters are designed in the same material (retified pine panel) as the cladding in order to homogenize the facade and the volume of the building on the scale of a collective micro of apartments. Glass railings give the impression that the opening is complete. The basement of the building is made of semi-massive limestone. The stone joints are laid vertically to line up with the hollow joints in the wood. The facade treatment is identical on the street, on the garden and on the two gables. The building incorporates high-performance energy devices: thermal insulation from the outside, double flow ventilation, solar DHW, green roof terrace.
