This project is the result of a passionate architect with experience in the sphere of durable architecture. The renovation demonstrates that complex technical systems are not imperative for energy savings. A successful project begins with an intelligent design. Sébastien Cruyt devised the basis concepts for this project: a greenhouse with roof, the central core assuring inertia and spreading heat … The result is fascinating, both from an energetic and an architectural point of view.
