We developed a prototype of a bus-stop for the village of Leubringhen, to be used by students and travelers in the region. “An opportunity to demonstrate ecological materials in a public space” was the brief given to us. We built it with poplar wood and Compressed stabilized earth blocks (CSEB) with a green roof. The design was conceived with a solar panel that lights up the inside as the sun is very rare in this region during winter. The bus-stop had to protect against the stong winds in the pas-de-calais region.
The huge interior wall gave plenty of room for creative freedom. We drew a map of the region highlighting all the local treasures, using non-toxic paints and plenty of enthusiasm from the village children.
