jtB Home / BLAF Architecten
Textual content description offered by the architects. The geometric design and the round manner of energetically performing constructing that characterizes BLAF is strongly current on this home. The wall construction with a self-supporting going through brick on the skin, a lightweight timber body on the within, and crammed with biobased dry lime hemp with out a cavity is a substitute for the normal cavity wall.
The cavity wall with plenty of insulation is not tenable as a constructing system. In consequence, we got here up with another hybrid outer shell that makes reversible constructing potential. We first construct an outer wall, after which a lightweight timber body inside, or vice versa. You may also break down the outer shell or the interior shell as a result of they every stand on their very own. We merely do not calculate thermal bridges. That is wasted time, we simply do not make any. So there are not any connections between the within and the skin. To do that, we would have liked a load-bearing outer wall from which you could possibly detach the outer wall from the inside.
The design considerations a compact and energy-efficient single-family dwelling. The place to begin: respect for the reduction and the atmosphere. A compact quantity was aimed in order that the visible relationships from the general public area to the panorama behind are preserved. As a result of compact hexagonal, equilateral footprint, the amount stands solitary within the panorama, the undeveloped land retains its reduction as a lot as potential.
The form with its sloping sides creates a higher distance to the lateral plot boundaries, which limits the affect on the atmosphere and supplies privateness to the neighbors. Within the aspect partitions, the window openings are additionally restricted to make sure the privateness of the neighbors. To be able to combine the amount discreetly into the panorama and to offer a adequate residential program, the home is pushed into the slope.
On the rear, inside the enclosed hexagon, we withdraw the protected quantity and introduce a wood curtain wall that extends over the three tales. The patio created between the curtain wall and the stone shell serves as solar safety within the heat summer season months. The curtain wall ensures a view of the panorama behind each ground. The openings within the brick quantity body the panorama. The concrete (ring) beams within the facade assure the steadiness of the self-supporting facade masonry below wind masses.
