Energy renovation of a Lausanne-style building

03.08.2022 · News

Building renovation represents one of the major challenges of the energy transition. It is imperative to provide solutions that allow a building to improve its energy performance in order to significantly reduce its active consumption while respecting the built heritage.

An example of this is the energy renovation of the façade and common areas of a Lausanne-style building. The intervention involved the complete renovation of the façade by the installation of peripheral insulation that meets current standards and requirements.

The ceiling of the entire basement containing the cellars was also insulated in its entirety. The tinwork, balconies and railings were refurbished. New roller blinds and awnings were also replaced. The large windows in the two stairwells leading to the flats were replaced by vertical elements with high thermal performance and a contemporary look.

Particular care was taken with the choice of facade colours and the installation of horizontal cornices and window frames in grey, restoring the building to its former splendour. All the lighting in the communal areas has been replaced by LED sources and the project is eligible for the Equiwatt grant. The planting and flooring around the building are also being completely redesigned.
