ARCHI7 | MMRThe project is inscribed within the urban tissue of Réchy. It contributes for the densification of the village, emphasizes the street front defined by its neighboring existing buildings and re-enforces the rural character of the site. Its compact volume, which scarcely uses land surface, restricts its visual impact.

ARCHI7 | MMRBuilt with a pre-fabricated wooden structure, the house is rationally isolated. Its double flux ventilation allows for continuous air renewal, which prevents energy loss caused by opening windows during Winter. These are oriented to take advantage of solar contribution and to provide particular views.
