http://hongrie-gourmande.com/frensis/5170 This site was an existing derelict masonry building which was stabilised using a new customised Ecoshelta alloy framing system with a new 4 pod upper floor with surrounding terrace. The design included a cellar and courtyard with small pool. This project used an experimental phase change saline pod with thermal performance nodules in thick limestone paved floors, with solar powered floor heating system. The central bond features a geometric alloy framed timber tread staircase. The internal walls were traditional lime hard plastered and remain unpainted. Recycled timbers were extensively used throughout and the louvred shutters were created from old timber fence – recycled frame and palings for blades. The kitchen benches were made from recycled builders planks.
