ahhh! the problem is my house is too *active.*

i need a house that is lovely, compact, utilitarian and passive. via the designboom peeps.

franklin azzi architecture designed ‘passive house’, through renovating a former hunting house in normandy, france. the project meets the requirements of high environmental quality as it includes rainwater collection,  the use of solar energy (hybrid) and geothermal energy, and reduction of raw material by optimizing the efforts to structure. the assembly of the structure was done on site with all recyclable materials from a distance of 100km.  wood and vegetable fibers are used for the walls providing insulation and  windows provide natural ventilation, etc.
