Located on the heights of the commune of Bonne, in a quiet residential area, unique bioclimatic 4 roof architect’s house is located.
Its 197 m2 of interior surface area (and 200 m2 of additional useful surface area), just like the 1000 m2 land which accommodates it, have been thought out down to the smallest detail.
The objective? The creation of a habitat in perfect balance between ecological awareness, technological prowess and harmony of the senses. The entrance to the house reflects the major assets of this unique construction: spacious, bright and open to the heart of the home. This living space of more than 30 m2 serves the different areas of the house, and opens through two double sliding bay windows onto the central terrace of 82 m2.
The U-shaped construction, which envelops this outdoor space, gives it a dimension that is both open and intimate. This unique architecture makes it possible to create a protective cocoon, hidden from view, while allowing natural light to be omnipresent in all the rooms that compose it. This configuration is also beneficial from an ecological point of view because the exterior walls protect the central courtyard from heat and cold, allowing better thermal insulation of the house and thus reducing heating costs.
The ground floor offers a spacious independent kitchen, equipped with new household appliances and custom-made storage. Bathed in light thanks to a large custom-made glass roof on the one hand and large bay windows on the other, it allows you to enjoy an open view of the heart of the house as well as the outside. A large living room, benefiting from a remarkable ceiling height with exposed framework, a master bedroom with dressing area and direct access to the terrace, a bathroom offering a corner bathtub and shower, a guest bedroom, a storage room cloakroom-laundry room with service door and a separate toilet complete this level.
Upstairs, an open room offers several possible functions: games room, relaxation area, library. Its central square distributes 3 bedrooms and a bathroom, a separate toilet and a sheltered balcony-terrace, Tropezian style, with an open view of the Saleve and the Jura range.
The 77 m2 basement is completely open. It houses the technical equipment of the house (city gas boiler, softener, reverse osmosis unit, electrical panel and home automation system). An annexed garage of 24 m2 and a carport complete the useful spaces of this high-end house.
The home automation technology with which the house is equipped is both scalable and flexible, thanks to a choice of hi-Tech NE cabling equipment and a distributed star network. All life scenarios are possible (lighting, audio system, heating, control of the house’s 17 adjustable sunshades, alarm). Ecologically, everything is designed to minimize the environmental impact of the house: thermal panels on the roof provide water heating, a 13 cube meters buried rainwater collector supplies the toilets and watering the garden, all the materials that make up the house are natural (exterior wood fiber insulation and cellulose wadding under the roof, mineral plaster on the exterior, mineral lime on the interior walls, ecological paint) and of course, an orientation of the house and its logical and thoughtful openings to reduce heating needs.
The harmony of the senses was also designed through the unique work of the architect who imagined and designed the house in compliance with Feng-Shui rules and the square of order.
The exterior of the house has also been worked in this direction: star jasmine, Indian lilac, Japanese maple, azalea, bamboo, walnut, various evergreens create a space that is both rejuvenating and soothing, while reducing maintenance constraints. to the maximum. Throughout the seasons, the scents and colors change, highlighting the unique shade of the Red Cedar solid wood cladding that adorns the house.

In winter, the local resorts of Brasses or Hirmentaz are 25 minutes away, Chamonix is only 45 minutes away, and Annecy is 40 minutes away.
