Parasite housing modules on the building in Paris.
As a rule, in megapolis, the issue of a free space for the construction of new buildings is acute. In some cities, the architectural ensemble of the streets is not allowed to change. The French architect proposed an original solution: to build new housing modules directly into old buildings.
Malka Plug-in City Architectural Project 75.
Architect Stefan Malka (Stephane Malka) has developed a reasonable way of optimizing the energy efficiency of old urban structures, taking into account the limitations of the building rules and the rules of Paris. The essence of the proposal is to build wooden cubes to the existing buildings of the 1970s, thus expanding the living area.
Draft housing modules attached to the 1970s building.
A team of specialists from Malka Plug-in City 75 will soon begin the project. It is planned that a building located in the 16th District of Paris is being used for " parasites " .
The living area of old houses will increase with new wooden plots.
The energy efficiency of the building is left to do better: bad insulation, scattered glazing. The architect assures that his wooden superstructures are going to hit the house, thereby reducing the annual energy consumption of the building by 75 per cent.
There will be apartments in the 16th district of Paris in the old houses.
Modular boxes made of wood particles and haircuts are light enough to allow them to be easily transported and installed. There will also be an aesthetic view of the building.
Wooden cubes will increase the energy efficiency of homes by 75 per cent.
While wooden cubes are another project under development, Stefan Malka has already implemented a project of other " disastrous " structures attached to Paris Houses.
