a Dynamic facade experience

You best experience the building while moving!

In the early summer of 2020 we won 2nd place with our design at the Wien Energie facade competition.

The heart of our design is a modular facade system that can be planted with greenery. In consultation with a landscape planner, a seasonal concept is being developed in order to promise balanced flowering and greenery throughout the year.

Depending on the budget, photovoltaic and planting otions are also available for the design of the building roof. In line with the Group's philosophy, this makes a valuable contribution to improving the urban climate.

 

Dynamic reinforcement
Visually, energy is transferred to the outside and made tangible by means of two facade levels.
 

Structuring Lamellas
The color of the regularly arranged metal lamellas is based on a gradually increasing temperature scale. This alludes unmistakably to the characteristic orange of the Wien-Energie group.

For maintenance purposes, the northeast façade can be opened by means of a sliding mechanism in the lamellas.

THE DYNAMICS OF THE FAÇADE DESIGN BECOME EVEN MORE INTENSE AS YOU MOVE PAST IT.

With irregularly spaced indents we deliberately set contrasts to the stringent lamella structure. This way the facade can be enriched with modules that can be used in various ways, e.g. with photovoltaics or green modules, LED tickers, gates or even glass strips.
