Eco-Friendly Renovation: Shelter House by Franklin Azzi

Eco-Friendly Renovation: Shelter House by Franklin Azzi

This vacation house in Normandy was built from a small cottage that was renovated for seasonal use — the shape of the original small home was extended out with wooden platforms/decks that can be transformed into summer sleeping quarters with a tent-like canvas roof...

The design, by architect Franklin Azzi, utilizes local resources (stone and timber) and takes advantage of solar and geothermal energy, rainwater harvesting and natural ventilation.

Many more pictures (before, during and after construction & renderings) at the Franklin Azzi site.
