Gallery: Egg-Shaped Isover Multi-Comfort House Meets Passive House Stan...

 
This is definitely one of the most exciting urban regeneration proposals we've seen in a long while

This winding housing project is organized around a central green core that is expected to promote community interaction. No cars are allowed inside the housing block and many services, such as shops, galleries and offices will be incorporated into individual homes. A common parking lot will be tucked underground.

By sharing walls and deleting corners, the designer has minimized each home’s external surface, which in turn slashes the building’s heating requirement. As designed, this concept will require only 3.33 kwh/sqm each year – well within Passive House stipulations. More than just a block of houses, this proposal deliberately sets out to uplift the local community and that in itself is a noteworthy departure from the status quo.
