Energy-intensive building

The project concerns the self-promotion creation of 6 strip dwellings on the Monconseil eco-neighborhood of the concerted development zone in Tours.
This housing construction program was based on the participative housing approach and meets the wishes of the project leaders to limit the environmental impact of this structure through the use of biobased materials and the Passive Buildings objective.

The key words that guided the project are: "high performance, ecological habitat, sharing and sharing". These objectives, which brought together and federated from the beginning the project leaders, are always present at the finish and are translated on the architectural level, functional and on the constructive mode. Achieving such a project is a question of will. Each member of the collective has contributed to the building. Built as much consensus as consents, it is the culmination of a long-term work that is emerging here.

Sustainable development approach of the project owner

  • a compact habitat, efficient passive, healthy, ecological and perennial
  • a habitat with reasoned living spaces: build only the essentials and share certain spaces by giving them the capacity to fulfill multiple functions.
  • a reasonable final cost and à la carte housing to promote social and inter-generational diversity

The choice was made to realize the entire construction wood frame and insulation straw (walls) or wood wool (roof box), according to bioclimatic principles. The thickness of a straw boot allows, in itself, to achieve considerable thermal performance. A wood wool interior lining completes the acoustics of the project.

Architectural description

The choice was made to realize the entire construction wood frame and insulation straw (walls) or wood wool (roof box), according to bioclimatic principles. The thickness of a straw boot allows, in itself, to achieve considerable thermal performance. A wood wool interior lining completes the acoustics of the project. The exterior cladding is still under discussion with the City of Tours for a perfect integration of the project into its immediate environment. A so-called "shell" pose is envisaged to animate the facade and give the appearance of a single housing unit.

More information

heating: 14.6 kWhep / m².year. Average over the entire structure. Depends on dwellings, compactness, orientation, glazed area, etc.

Systems

    • Electric radiator
    • Wood boiler
    • Solar Thermal
    • No cooling system
    • Double flow heat exchanger
    • Solar Thermal
    • Wood boiler

    Heating and Emitters: Bioclimatic design favoring the solar gains with diffusion of the heat by the VMC double-fluxAppoints electric towel-drying in the parts of water (1 housing envisages a wood stove with weak power)

    Sanitary Hot Water: 3 homes have a thermodynamic balloon, 3 have solar thermal panels connected to an individual solar water heater

Urban environment

  • 699,40 m2
  • The accommodation Eco'n'home is located in the Monconseil district of Tours. The area is very well served by public transport and has many historic pavilions. Local shops and a chapel and a garden are under construction.

Life Cycle Analysis

    Wood, wood wool, straw, earth rendering. Eco-materials account for about 42% of the cost of construction. Materials used Structure: Wood, Insulation: Straw, wood wool Interior design: False ceilings in wood wool and plaster on 2 dwellings Analysis Bio-based materials Project floor area: 699.4m² Total weight of MBS implemented: 74 Kg / m² Non-wood mass work and layout: 46 Kg / m² Does not take into account the earth coatings implemented in 2 dwellings

Reasons for participating in the competition(s)

​Dans l’objectif de réduire au maximum les consommations d'énergies primaires et de ressources non renouvelables une attention a été portée sur le recours aux matériaux biosourcés et l’absence de chauffage central conventionnel. L'empreinte carbone de la construction finale est proche de zéro. Ces ambitions ont été traduite dès la phase conception du projet et l’étude sur les performances globales menée par le bureau d’étude permet de mettre en lumière leurs impacts sur le projet et son environnement.
