Body

This house aims to demonstrate that it is possible to build a revolutionary house that looks conventional, and on top of that in record time for only 200 euros per square metre more than an RT2012 house.

The key characteristics are:

-          Its compactness: an 82-square-metre, 3-bedroom house that’s functional and respects the essentials of quality housing in all respects (air, noise and comfort);

-          Its affordable cost: the house was designed to cost a third of the average monthly income of a  first-time buyer family in a dense urban environment, that is to say about 1000 euros per month, land included, without any energy expenses since its low energy consumption is fully covered by its production so as to reach an annual balance;

-          Its carbon impact: thanks to wood and other top-of-the-range, fully recyclable materials coupled with high-quality technical equipment. This house is genuinely sustainable, can be built within a single day, barely generates any building waste and does not cause any disturbance within the neighbourhood.

It is E+C- and BEPOS-certified.
