11 Housing Units

Innovation in architecture has just turned the corner with 2:pm Architectures from France making everyone sit up and take notice. They have broken new ground in this field by planning a project, a housing complex built on a slope at Turquant, France. This complex comprises of 11 units. In the thick implantation, a living environment is articulated through this project, along with two adding up 11 units. The feature that makes these housing units stand apart is the fact that the units do not contain any wood at all. People at 2:pm Architecture believe that to create and build up something that will keep up, the resources used should be taken into consideration.
Situated in a flat position on top of the rock, residents will be able to view the vast, delightful scenery from the Loire’s lap. The roof is solitary. It has, however, modulations that are in juxtaposition to the boundary of the back of the abyss of Crete. There are two buildings that are to the west. These are constructed straight up. These two are positively going to remind you of the countryside. The roof with single incline is incised in a square, even if slightly so.

They have paid attention to the use of steel. Using steel is advantageous for various reasons. Frequent use of wood to construct buildings is unfavorable to the environment. Using steel is a more eco friendly option. Steel is recyclable and can be reused for an indefinite period. Steel, even after recycling, does not lose any of its properties that are originally found in it. The framing is done by putting together the steel while building. It is easy to disband the steel resources that are used in the housing, and is also easy to recycle them as required. Using steel is a sophisticated, cost effective and environmental friendly step as far as constructing buildings are concerned.

These housing units interpret the neighboring surroundings in a very different, unique and modern way. The Turkish native architecture is, however, preserved in these buildings. The construction flaunts roofs with solitary incline, the sophisticated veneer on the lanes, and access to stairs that are external are specific to Turkish architecture.
