This project is part of the redevelopment of an abandoned neighbourhood bordering on a railway site. It is composed of eight passive social housing units accompanied by a child care centre, a multifunctional hall and logistics premises.
The concrete platform system (“open plan”) will allow easy redevelopment of the building in the future. This option also promotes use of the thermal mass to avoid overheating and to manage the shell independently by a self-supporting wooden frame; prefabricated wooden façade elements guarantee insulation, reinforced by cellulose.
The housing units are passive and their heating requirements are reduced to15 kWh/m².yr. In addition to the use of drinking water economisers, rainwater is used for the toilets. Domestic water is pre-heated by 22 m2 of thermal solar cells and the building has a 420 m2 extensive green roof.
