This single-family house has been completely renovated and extensively converted to accommodate three flats and a medical consultation office. Two of these flats have been rented to the social housing agency of Saint-Josse-Ten-Noode.
Forty-three percent of the domestic hot water is produced by thermal solar panels (10 m2) installed on the roof, along with the furnace and two boilers. In terms of eco-construction, the use of sustainable, ecological materials has been stressed: FSC wood, natural slate, fibre plaster, linoleum, whitewash, and ecological paint. The ambition in terms of energy consumption is 24kWh/m2.yr. A 109 m2 extensive green roof and two 6 m3 rainwater cisterns are part of the project.
To complete the overall exemplary nature of the ecological approach, a planted façade has been developed on the street side, increasing the architectural character of the building.
