House and Office
- house and architecture office
- The project, comprised of a house and offices, is situated on the last vacant plot in the street. The central location, close to the various municipal services, and the home office will optimize daily runs and facilitate the use of soft modes of transport.[...]
The position in the street has limited surface wastage on three facades. Furthermore, this implantation has completed the urban fabric.
The raising of the living area above the street level creates flow with the garden, allows viewing of the activity in the architectural office located in the semi basement and provides constant natural light.
The materials are modelled on materials that cover the facades and gables in the street.
Given its high degree of insulation, the project does not require a central heating system but is only equipped with a complementary pellet heater.
This project, in general, was designed with the view in mind to integrate the current ecological context, as much in terms of its location, its materials and its technical implementation.
The interior is dressed with natural materials, contrasting with the rigor of the exterior architecture. The basement is made entirely of precast concrete. The ground floor is covered from floor to ceiling with boards of light ash wood. Light colors have been applied to the walls and floor in order to optimize lighting and increase the brightness.
