Located in Montagny, Ecole des Landes of the Lyon agency AFAA Architecture is a school group of kindergarten, elementary classes, a multipurpose hall and a canteen. Based on a Douglas fir structure and monomurs bricks, that reduced energy consumption building reflects the HQE of its architects, Philippe Audart, Marc Favaro, Damien Poyet.
On the project of the School of Landes, AFAA Architecture says:
"Our HQE is pragmatic and realistic and involves the use of simple and inexpensive means.
This is firstly to propose a set that is in harmony with the site and its location along the separative limits and its discreet and respectful volume of the iconic perspective towards the Church. This first point is accompanied by research on construction methods and choice of local and healthy materials: douglas wood structure and brick monomur, recyclable seal veganism; materials Finishing work consists of traditional plaster, linoleum, paint solvent etc ...
The appearance energy consumption is optimized by the use of a particular wood boiler and rationalization of natural light while controlling solar gain.
The set of openings sized according to the size of the parts, are equipped with motorized venetian blinds.
A natural ventilation system allows night cooling local stored through the building inertia.
The roof vegan accompanies this device and enhances the landscape character of the project.
All premises are equipped with motion sensors and lighting linked to photo-sensitive cells. "
