BIO CLI­MATIC HOMES

Society Interiors - - PROPERTY -

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.
