/An oasis/ at Cap Ferret
The choice of the same material for the facades and roofs in burnt wood was necessary to integrate with the vegetation.
Inspired by the oyster villages of the region, this villa stretches into the depth of the plot, following its slope.
The building is housed under the canopy, minimizing its impact from the road. The sun, through the clear eaves, offers a play of light on the facades and the generous openings offer a transparency that makes the most of the vegetation of the site to offer indoor/outdoor spaces.
The burnt wood roof overlay creates a sunshade for the steel panelling.
The wooden structure of the walls and the roof have a consequent external thermal insulation , thus avoiding the overheating that the colour of the house could generate. The addition of solar panels in the future will be perfectly integrated. The floor, swimming pool and hot water are heated by the pellet boiler. The interior cladding (clay slabs, terracotta) serves the inertia of the project. The solar protections, ventilation and air inlets are automated to regulate the interior temperature.
Our aim: to design an ecological, comfortable and sustainable building.
We wanted to change the paradigm of the owners of this house, no more concrete, no more mineral wool and no air conditioning. We used pine framing, bio-sourced wood wool insulation, maintenance-free burnt wood cladding and a pellet boiler. The application of clay and terracotta tiles, ventilation and solar protection provide inertia and comfort to the villa while serving the architectural project.
