For this project, the challenge was not to just make a low consumption “box” but also to take care of the quality of the environments (natural lighting, ventilation and cooling, etc.). To achieve an intelligent synthesis between these different concerns, Mengeot & associates has paid particular attention to the building envelope that, in fact is the most sustainable part of the building.

Strong points

  • Taking into account the orientation of the site for the installation and work on the facades and roofs
  • Double flux ventilation
  • Heated / cooling floors


  • Bioclimatic design using a central canopy, a crawl space (to ensure internal temperature control)
  • Hygrometric and thermal comfort
