Children's Center of Caulnes

Quinze Architecture as Architects

In the extension of the existing Nursery School, the project owner entrusted the study and the realization of its project of Passivhaus and bio-based children's center to the agency Quinze Architecture. The children's center interacts with all the other educational buildings of the school complex that surround it, extending their activities.

Under a sloping and large roof, the entire interior and exterior program is housed. Partially perforated, it assumes several functions: sheltering the activity rooms or the outdoor courtyard, lighting, framing views and linking the different buildings of the school complex.

Beyond a PASSIVHAUS realization, the children's center of Caulnes also responds to a very particular attention to a healthy and ecological building. For the construction, ecological and local materials were used in preference: - Wooden frame and framework, Douglas wood cladding - Insulation in blown cellulose wadding, exterior insulation in wood fiber panels, interior partitions insulated in metisse - False ceilings in wood fiber, interior floor coverings in natural Marmoleum, bio-based paint type Algo.

To meet the technical, ecological and thermal expectations it was implemented: - double flow ventilation with very high efficiency (Atib Gold) - Joineries Passivhaus aluminum (profile Hueck) - Addition of heating by transmitter in ceiling slabs (natural gas boiler condensation) - airtightness achieved by the interior bracing (spano Durelis).
