PARIS - shortlisted
The project compactness, inherited from urban choices, is the occasion to reach very high thermal performances. The envelope is like a thermos flask, with a minimum of accidents interrupting insulation continuity. The volume simplicity opposes a rich and meticulous work of the facades treatment. The facade consists of two superimposed layers. The first layer, drawn by metallic structures, allows energy production through photovoltaic panels, works as a balustrade and plays the role of a sun breaker, regulating solar contributions all year long.
