Malka Architecture Offers a Proposal for Energy Efficiency Improvement

In the interest of sustainability and an effective energy efficiency improvement Malka Architecture reveals plans for "attaching boxy parasitic extensions" to the exterior of a 1970s Parisian apartment building. The project is dubbed Plug-in City 75.

Since the vintage construction of the building fails to subscribe to the notions of sustainability and eco-friendly living, Malka Architecture provides the proposal for the energy efficiency improvement via the responsibly sourced wooden modular boxes. However, the extensions will also be tailored to the needs and wants of each resident. This will ultimately provide the building's units with additional space.

The 1970s Parisian apartment complex will not only display a quarter of its previous energy consumption, but it will also undergo aesthetic changes as the modular parasitic extensions offer the option for the building to be draped in greenery.
