Transformation and extension of a 1930 house in Vevey, 2010

previous/next

Individual house (65 m2 on the ground) BUILT IN 1930'S. With no isolation and too small, no more acceptable following the current laws on buildings. Extension of the existing house through the integration of a glasshouse. The aim was to bring light into the building and to reflect the neighboring forest in the new façade, integrating the house in the vegetation. Prefabrication was chosen to replace the old roof and for the extension; the wooden structure was preferred to a metallic one to improve the comfort and as a technical choice. The volumes of the old building and of the new glasshouse are treated as two cubes fitting together; the old part has small windows, old walls and cinder blocks, the new extension is glass made and has a localized structure. Old house façades: ventilated façade with a 20 cm thick isolation, covered by a pine paneling treated with alcohol made by sugar cane, a Finnish product created for boat boarding stages, without any chemical product (info at www.kebony.com) Glasshouse façades: glass façades with triple glass for the livable zones and double glass for the greenhouse. Interior ceilings made of birch wood; parquets made of oak wood. Tubular solar panels were installed on the roof to provide domestic hot water
