In the English Channel, this contemporary house built by Trabeco combines mastery and structural audacity. Roofs curvaceous, a sculptural glass roof flooded with light, a set of staggered volumes ...
What led to the choice of a construction so deliberately modern, a priori surprising in a Norman region with rather traditional granite buildings? The tastes of the owner and the proposals of a local builder very aware of the requirements of the 2012 thermal regulation (RT 2012).
The house is built of Imerys bricks covered with two layers of scraped plaster, and is insulated sound and heat by rockwool. Why zinc roofs? On the one hand because it is a robust cover quite common in the constructions of the Normandy coast, on the other hand because it is the only material which rounds with such a flexibility and that the owner liked this idea of curves. As for the large bay-window (6 m high!) It seemed essential to illuminate both the ground floor and the floor of this house designed on several levels. As for the living room, it opens with sliding black-tinted aluminum sliding doors, an interesting contrast with its red bordeaux exterior frame.
109 m2 of living space on the ground floor and 59 m2 on the mezzanine floor. The different levels create intimacy: the parental suite below, above the garage, has its terrace. The children's rooms are on the mezzanine floor lit by the large glass roof. On the heating side too, compliance with RT 2012: two heated floors at the top and bottom, powered by sensors deep in the ground, a vertical geothermal system made indispensable by the small size of the ground. In the end, a year of work for an estimated cost of 290,000 euros finished house, a fine example of contemporary construction smart and respectful of its environment.
