COMAMALA ISMAIL introduces Les Vergers apartment building

 

Les Vergers, a residential project by Comamala Ismail in Delémont, Switzerland, adheres to the highest architectural and environmental standards. Designed with one apartment per floor, each unit prioritizes privacy and offers unobstructed views in all directions. Positioned on the first terrace of the Sorne, the building benefits from a unique vantage point, showcasing panoramic views of the Vallée de Delémont and the Val Terbi.

 

The structure features a load-bearing core of concrete walls and columns set back from the facade, allowing for modular room configurations, particularly in the facade area. The interior spaces are characterized by openness and generosity. The facade, constructed entirely from well-insulated wood, utilizes untreated, split fir shingles sourced from the Franches-Montagnes. Synthetic materials are absent throughout the building, with mineral materials like natural stone, stoneware, and steel employed in construction. Oak is chosen for components such as windows, flooring, and built-in cupboards.

roof-mounted solar system generates energy for the building

 

An advanced comfort ventilation system with heat recovery circulates air within the apartments. The supply air undergoes pre-conditioning through a ground loop, adjusting its temperature before entering the ventilation unit. The building’s annual primary heating energy requirement remains below 1.5 liters of fuel oil equivalent per square meter. The design team fulfills heating and hot water requirements through a heat pump with geothermal probes, complemented by a roof-mounted solar system generating energy for building services and the three apartments. Residents of Les Vergers already align with the standards of the 2000-watt society.
