The owners of a 1700sqm plot near the ocean and the Hossegor lake, want to build a passive house to live as sustainable as possible. They want to build their project as an example for the next decades in terms of environmental performance, design and nature relationship.
The winning project features a double-storey house with a large opening on the south side directed to the swimming pool as well as a solarium terrace on the upper floor. The timber structure is an obvious choice in order to lower the carbon footprint of the project. Local and bio-based material, such as pine wood and compressed earth bricks, have been chosen as the main structural material. The entire envelope is made of burned wood cladding on the facades and the roof.
