BIO CLIMATIC HOMES
The unique timber framed bioclimatic house in Lyon, France has a cladding of larch and composite timber and a planted roof. Architect Tectoniques has maximised the environmental and thermal performance of the house by incorporating a glazing on the south façade to gain solar energy. Dry construction method has been used, while building the house with a prefabricated modular timber frame built on a concrete slab with larch cladding covering the exterior. Sweeping views are provided by floor-to-ceiling windows on opposite façades.
