House of Crafts

Highlighted Case January 2013
Share this Post:

Located in Gargas in the Vaucluse, the House of Crafts combines local materials such as cedar wood, hemp and compressed earth brick, produced locally in Luberon. The roof adopts a complex of vegetation, the structure includes a wall-sensor and one other noteworthy point: the removable sunshade provides summer shade and energizes the building. This house, built in place of a former hangar of a jam factory, abandoned, casts a positive image of the district Fournigons and encourages housing in the area, thus promoting urban density.
