Carbon Smart Communities

Winner: Mr Florian Golay in recognition of the regional timber construction „Au Clair du Quartier“, Grenoble (France)

„Au Clair du Quartier“ is a participative housing in Grenoble. The supporting framework is all in spruche coming from Vercors’s forest nearby. Those woods were directly selected and sawn by the carpenter himself. Cladding and decking of terraces are in larch coming from Briançon. They were implemented by the owners of the building themselves, controlled by the carpenter involved in this project.
