Design and construction of a social housing complex (11 residential units), a crèche (for 24 children) and an interior block, with everything in a functional space with contemporary architecture.

The energy target is to reach passive standard for the residential units and crèche. A single gas condensation boiler

will meet all the needs for heating and hot water. Finally, photovoltaic solar panels are installed for complying with the NZEB concept (nearly zero energy building).

Surface area:

  • Crèche for 24 children: 540 m²
  • Communal garden: 940 m²
