Nearly a century old, Nation 1’s carbon footprint has long since paid for itself. Against an outdated façadism, we preserve as much as possible of the existing in order to increase the ecological cost of the original construction as little as possible. Reuse, minimal additions and bio-sourced materials complete our carbon approach.
A sober renovation of the envelope and technical systems, an atrium that channels light to the lowest spaces of the project, exterior solar protection and an optimized natural summer ventilation strategy will ensure the thermal and visual comfort of the occupants while limiting the building’s energy consumption.
Murmure’s basements have an extraordinary character. Their occupancy brings a programmatic attractiveness to an atypical place for which natural light is allowed where it is usually difficult to claim access.
In addition, Elioth by Egis has conducted studies considering the use of basement energy through the Canadian well located 10m underground.
