In a context where the construction sector ranks third in greenhouse gas emissions (INSEE, 2022), architects are pivotal players in a crucial energy transition, reshaping construction methods. Buildings from the last century, initially shaped for aesthetic reasons such as Art Nouveau celebrating molded concrete and curves, and later for functional purposes with the advent of reinforced concrete meeting the needs of mass construction, are now confronted with contemporary challenges.

Built in 2009 by the Karawitz agency, this contemporary residence adheres to the stringent standards of Passivhaus, a European certification ensuring optimal energy management without the use of conventional heating methods. Nestled in Bessancourt, a commune in the Val d'Oise, it stands out not only for its exceptional energy performance but also for the exclusive use of ecological materials, including a complete structure made of solid wood.

Situated between the Montmorency state forest and the Maubuisson forest, the largest forest plantation in France since the 17th century, this residence enjoys a preserved and ecologically committed environment. Providing breathtaking views of a 12th-century church classified as a historical monument, it seamlessly integrates into this tranquil neighborhood, wrapped in chestnut wood ganivelle from the Cévennes, a choice inspired by the surrounding forests, imparting an almost sculptural elegance on the landscape.
