Ecole des Landes par AFAA

Located in Montagny, the School of Landes of the Lyon agency AFAA Architecture is composed of a school nursery classes, elementary classes, a multipurpose hall and a canteen. Based on a Douglas fir structure and monomurs bricks, this reduced energy consumption in 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 by its location along the separative limits and its discreet and respectful volume of the iconic perspective to the Church. This first point is accompanied by research on the construction method and the choice of local materials and healthy: 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 enables 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. "
