The program is to build a single family home low energy straw. Located in the center of a small island, the challenge is to offer views into the valley while “protecting” the neighboring buildings. The aim is also to test the flaw in its constructive and financial limitations by incorporating into the house curved walls, sloping walls, a floor tile, … and that in order to learn and be able to offer future solutions “improved” for the constructions of straw. requires tight budget, total self-eco-bio-construction is selected as natural straw partner. To further break down costs, projetest split into several construction phases. The current phase is composed of a living cell “minimum” platform serving as a grip for the next phase will be the construction of a floor. The different rooms of the house will evolve with the project: the kitchen will turn into a laundry room, the living room and in the bathroom with shower.
