The weekly magazine Le Figaro Magazine is interested in innovation in construction and particularly in PopUp House: “Today, constructions must be exemplary, more respectful of the planet, inhabitants and resources”
Teddy, Director of Planning at SCCV – Le Tremplin :
“We chose PopUp House to support us in the project to create Le Tremplin to meet time constraints. In fact the speed of construction was the trigger for this project”
The advantages of the project :
“The innovative concept, both in terms of architecture and materials used, makes it a truly recognizable product that attract curiosity and creates a pleasant atmosphere in the offices, thanks in particular to its acoustic quality”.
“We chose to work with PopUp House because it is a local company, we wanted to favour a collaborator from the region, to reduce distribution channels which made possible to reduce the carbon footprint in construction, while having a proximity on the construction site”.
The function of the premises :
A 336m² building available for the company HDSN, a specialist in connected objects.
The second of 626m², which includes an entrepreneurial centre, which will host permanent offices, the Local Initiative platform (support for business creation) or the companies in the West of the Etang de Berre and Cosens, an organisation providing advice and training in business creation.
Loic, his wife and their two children wanted a home adapted to their lifestyle.
“An existing house is designed like the previous owners didn’t allow us to customize our project. We wanted a tailor-made house.”
The couple appreciated : “the well thought-out and modular collections, the contemporary design and the innovative system of bioclimatic houses”.
To adapt to the land and its orientation, the family chose the Quartz model from the PopUp catalogue and made some modifications : surfaces, interior layouts, addition of a basement cellar, a pergola etc…
Loic and his wife have imagined a large living room to host their friends and family. The entire PopUp was designed around this main room with a lunch area, a large solid oak kitchen and a relaxation area.
After only 6 months of work, the family was able to move into this top-of-the-range project!
In a few months, solar panels will be installed on the roof to allow the family to live in a positive energy house.
The famous Stéphane Millet travelled to Loire-Atlantique to meet the architect of a 225m² PopUp.
EXPLANATIONS OF THIS POPUP PROJECT:
In the report, the architect describes how he designed the house and the constraints of the land ; the materials used indoors and outdoors; and the owner’s involvement in the development and implementation of the PopUp.
“The kitchen was the starting point of the project”
The family wanted a house arranged around the kitchen of their dreams. Once the plans for the kitchen had been drawn up, the architectural firm was able to design the 225m² house around this master room.
“A fast, clean and efficient construction”
After 4 months of work (excluding foundations) on a complex site, the family occupies this bioclimatic house. The owner, a professional interior designer, carried out most of the interior finishing work, which allowed him to make some savings on the entire project.
“Wood, omnipresent inside and outside”
The PopUp House structure and the chosen finishes make this house very pleasant and warm. Here, fibre-cement panels from our catalogue cover several interior parts, facades and some external installations.
In its special issue about the wood industry in France, Le Moniteur magazine mentions the big construction projects that are about to change the whole industry landscape.
Entitled “wood in the starting-blocks”, the issue features three French startup companies. PopUp House is mentioned for its “ambition to disrupt the sector”, through digital tools, industrialization and the simplicity of its concept.
It’s a special series on innovation that presents PopUp House: Houses that will revolutionize living.
In both our factory, our offices, construction sites, and or houses, TF1 meets the various players in PopUp House construction. The Goal: To understand the ecological and economic assets of our buildings.
Replay (in French) : “TF 20h of TF1” on March 10, 2019.
Located in Aix-en-Provence in the south of France, PopUp House knows no frontier for its projects!
With more than 360 projects in France and Europe, we surrounded ourselves with local players in every region to try and answer all the requests.
Both by the sea and in the mountains
Demand for PopUp Houses is the highest in PACA, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Languedoc-Roussillon Midi-Pyrénées with more than 50 project in each region. Would you have thought that our passive houses were as efficient under the Provence climate as under the Alps snow?
PopUp House is well desired in Nouvelle Aquitaine and Brittany as well, with more than 30 projects in each region. The other parts of France are not left out as there are 82 houses spread everywhere!
Ever since the begining of the PopUp House adventure, people have shared with us their project from all over the world.
In 2018, 19 projects were built abroad. You can find our passive houses everywhere in Europe (and beyond): in Belgium, Spain, Austria, Sweden, Netherlands, Germany and even in Georgia! Local architects and builders are working on adapting the PopUp House building system to their local regulations and constraints.
If you have a project in a European country close to France and you know a building professional there, feel free to contact us!
France3 Occitanie dug into this B&B owner’s challenge: combine luxary and ecology.
In Nimes, south of France, Manuel Mamane opened his doors and gave a tour of his 3 guest rooms and his house to the journalist.
The project was built in 2015 and is one of the first PopUp House’s projects.
