The design was guided by the resolve to honour the lot’s patron cedar; the designated building-free spaces; the wider architectural context, characterised by nearby farmland; and the desire to minimise energy consumption.
The Môlan includes 9 housing units : 6 5 room condominium units occupying the central building structures and 3 studios by the main pedestrian entrance.
The flats’ daytime areas—kitchens, living rooms, and dining rooms—look out onto large, southwest-facing terraces, and many of the flats have their own private gardens.
A lovely shared park completes the picture and acts as a bridge between farmers’ fields and the built-up environment.
In designing these units, the goal was to achieve high energy performance. Accordingly, they have rooftop photovoltaic solar panels, triple-glazed windows for ideal acoustic and thermal insulation, and heated floors.
|Gross floor area||957 m²|
|Certification||Minergie-P (very hight energy performance)|
