Architecture competition :
A PASSIVE HOUSE CONSTRUCTION
registration is closed
Near the ocean and the Hossegor Lake, Caroline and Charl are currently owners of a 1700sqm plot and want to build a 300sqm passive house to live as sustainable as possible. As a historical touristic area, the Landes county suffers from the urban sprawl and the lack of sustainable buildings necessary to change mindsets.
Aware of the footprint of every new construction in this world, they want to build their project as an example for the next decades in terms of environmental performance, design and nature relationship.
As nature lovers, the project owners also want to create an exemplary project of biophilic design. Behind this scholarly name, the aim is to build a house where landscape and architecture are designed together to create a real-life experience aimed at the well-being of the occupants, the biodiversity of the plot and the surrounding environment.
The entire project will have to meet Passivhaus institute’s Passive House certification requirements and reach the carbon footprint level of the E+C experiment launched by the French government as low as possible. Contemporary and biophilic design.
This project is not just a house project. It aims to become a reference in responsible architecture, aware of the energy and environmental challenges we face.
