A Prefab Timber-framed Bioclimatic House by Tectoniques Architects

A Prefab Timber-framed Bioclimatic House by Tectoniques Architects | Architecture and Architectural Jobs |
This "bioclimatic" house in France features a timber frame, larch and composite timber cladding, and a planted roof.

The +Energy House in Germany

The +Energy House in Germany | Architecture and Architectural Jobs |

From the architect:

The +Energy House lies down as a flat structure on the sloping site and forms at the upper floor a platform that connects inside and outside together and offers a magnificent view of the countryside. The two-storey structure incorporates mixed construction systems: concrete on the ground floor, with wood upstairs.

Additionally, dowelled laminated timber elements enable the structure to be entirely built without glues, with a clients request for pollution-free construction and ecological building materials.
