How to lower the environmental impact of the construction industry, and buildings in operation, by replacing traditional claddings with energy producing facades.
The Copenhagen International School: 12.000 custom panels are fitted making this one of the worlds larges and most iconic BiPV projects. The façade provides around 50% of the schools energy needs. The identical panels are individually tilted and due to the structural colour coating this induces a beautiful colour shift in the façade that changes over the day and year as the sun moves.
The Student Experience International Building: located in Amsterdam with a 3000 panel façade providing a similar visual experience.
The PowerHouse and the ZEB-Lab: located in Norway, both are ZEB-COM houses that recoup the entire environmental investment in materials, construction and operation over the next 60 years thanks to the building-integrated solar cells.
