No, this is not a post of Beautiful Houses, could be because this house is beautiful, but I thought I could do a post about it with another goal, the constructive and sustainable differential of this house somewhat unusual.

Located in Bessancourt in France, it's a project by Karawitz Architecture. It reminds me those houses that used to draw as a child, a box with roof, and this is basically the design of Passive House. But when we analyze it goes a bit further, I can say is bold from the floor to the roof. The only concrete used in this work is the foundation and over it are structured large rigid wooden panels, covered with bamboo rods. The roof has a lot of blades to capture solar energy generation.

Other than that the interior part of a minimalist line, with only a few colors, a few furniture and of course a lot of raw wood covering the walls and ceilings. The solar orientation generate heat and direct light from one side while the other is closed to keep warm on cold days. Perhaps lacking a little color and life in some places, but for those who like simplicity is an amazing building.
