Wood House – Image 01 of 10
Hauts de Seine, France | passive wooden house | 2005 | private client | 390 000 € | 170 m²
The house is located in a wooded area on the edge of a forest in the Hauts de Seine Department, and raises its height of the ground to respect trees and their roots. Since the arrival, the facade and the roof, developed as a continuum, both wood cladded, could seem as a small hill hidden in the undergrowth.
The facade line follows the trees position, as if the trees would press the house, and highlight on the entrance stairs.
The project sinks finds its origins on a reflection about sustainable development; it is a passive house, almost completely energy independent, with a special care for thermal isolation.
