Our Flagship Design
Our philosophy and motivation are to propose energy efficient habitats that promote awareness and wellbeing for generations to come:
"Functional beauty with a twist of sustainability."
The use of self supporting wooden arches as the main structural support also procures unparalleled earthquake resistance due to the lack of perpendicularity to seismic rays.
Its natural aerodynamics also provides the structure with great resistance to high winds. Impact glass with optional reinforced sliding shutters protect the glass facade in hurricane prone areas.
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 equator facing side 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.
ECOLOGICAL MATERIALS AND OPTIONS
Durable & ecological white sun reflecting roof finish for controlled heat gains.
Rainwater recuperation system ideally located at the base of the northern pedestal.
Computerized venting system at the top of its large bay windows to automatically evacuate or circulate accumulated warm air.
Our structure uses Nature’s spontaneous proportions (Golden number 1,618)
to increase structural strength and promote a higher sense of wellbeing.
Centralized layout for more conviviality and functional room distribution.
Panoramic bay windows allowing a full 180° view from the main living area.
Large east/west 180° outside sun deck partially shaded in the summer time.
Our optimized passive solar design offers unparalleled energy efficiency and is adaptable to most climates found on our planet.
Its unique shape and structural integrity allows it to be built on slopped terrains depending on local needs & requirements.
It offers many customizable options along with the possibility of full basement, integrated pool, adjacent garage and more.
