Designer David Fanchon proposes a truly optimized passive solar structure
with numerous advantages:

Energy efficiency: Highly ecological and economical to maintain

This structure was designed with both the Sun's daily and year-round course in mind. Its shape is optimized to take advantage of the Sun's benefits when needed and to protect from its harsher heat when necessary.

The front of the structure offers large bay windows to take advantage of the Sun's heat in the winter while being completely protected by its adapted roof during summer's warmer days, therefore keeping the house's interior naturally cooler. *

This translates into a highly energy efficient home where the need to artificially heat and cool your interior is tremendously reduced.

Its unique shape and inclinable solar panels provide maximized solar energy gains and additional shade when necessary.


*This home is built with full south facing bay windows (for the northern hemisphere) and therefore, offers great structural barriers against cold northern wind on its north side (the opposite is valid for southern hemisphere projects).

Protective: Anti seismic & Aerodynamic

The roof's shape along with the use of thick wooden arches procures the structure with great resistance against earthquakes and high winds, providing inhabitants with the incomparable comfort and safety of a cocoon.

Balanced and convivial:

The open layout allows light to fill the entire house without any obstruction giving its inhabitants a full 180º panoramic view. Every room gets its due share of sunlight; making this a pleasant environment for all individuals to grow and blossom.

Although we suggest having the main living area in the structural center, creating a balanced distribution of living space, the interior layout is fully customizable, to suit all needs.
