Maison Air et Lumière is a flexible, environmentally friendly home that focuses on the comfort and health of the family within. Based on a modular architectural concept with a pitched roof, Maison Air et Lumière’s size, layout and orientation can be adapted to a number of different settings.
The pitched roof has a long, rich history in France, with variations in steepness throughout the country’s regions and climates. In Maison Air et Lumière, however, the roof’s angle and orientation also maximise the home’s intake of daylight and solar energy. And for further flexibility, the home’s modules can be combined to create custom layouts and a wide range of interior spaces that meet the needs of today’s families.
The Model Home 2020 experiments comply with the Active House principles where the three main principles of energy, indoor climate and environment are actively integrated in the design of buildings. This Active House radar shows how all parameters within each principle are balanced against each other, enabling the holistic approach and overview to sustainable buildings. It also shows that the Active House parameters depend on active choices within each parameter.
