Laurent Troost Exhibits The Campinarana House

Laurent Troost, the architect of the displayed project House by Laurent Troost says, In the Amazon, natural conditions are extreme and the proximity of the equatorial zone requires an architecture oriented towards thermal comfort and "passive" sustainability: adequate footprint, protective eaves, dimensioning and orientation of cross ventilation openings, as well as preservation of local ecological systems. To preserve the pre-existing Campinarana – a type of Amazon forest -, the main architectural strategy was to minimize footprint by reversing the classic housing typology: sleeping rooms are located on the ground floor and living spaces on the upper floor. .
