Media, NEWS, Real estate

After nearly nine years of work, studying, and reflection, the elected officials of the Crolles municipality in the Park district will become the first passively eco-neighborhood in France in 2020.

Afidial Promotion is responsible for the development of this project of 16 T4 and T5 passive homes.

With the PopUp system and its excellent thermal performance, energy consumption is estimated at 250 € / year for the cost of heating and hot water.


This eco-district has been conceived as an ecological space made to serve the people living there

More than 50% of the area is green space, it has a collective greenhouse and rainwater collectors, as well as the provision of electric cars for owners of shared-use homes.

Just a few kilometers from Grenoble, close to all commercial and public services, the commercialization will begin at the end of April.

Several lots are still available.

PopUp House celebrates Sciences


This year, the Festival Science is taking place from  October 6 to 14.

Thousands of free events are open to everyone, from the general public to schoolchildren and high school students. Every year, Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation organizes the Science Festival for the population to discover the world of sciences and meet industry players.

PopUp House Team was thrilled to host two classes of Emile Zola High School, on Thursday, October 11th, in Aix-en-Provence. Their mission for the day was to comprehend the concept of a passive house and the technologies and engineering techniques involved in the design of a PopUp.

Our last words will be Robin’s feedback: 

“The PopUp House is a fast-growing passive house that uses recyclable materials. For the next 5 years, I think up a 100% energy-autonomous PopUp House.”

See you next year!
