The refurbished office building has received a modern BIPV façade.

Aesthetic integration

The BIPV façade has been adapted individually to the existing building. The black frameless modules create a uniform surface. They were equipped with an invisible backside glued frame. The result is an elegant power-generating façade that is not recognizable as such at first glance.

Energy integration

The BIPV modules are estimated to produce around 25 MWh per year.

Technology integration

399 glass-glass modules (eFORM color) in 15 different sizes and geometries were optimally integrated by SUNOVATION into the existing building structure. The substructure for this back-ventilated curtain facade has been anchored in the concrete walls with retaining brackets and combined with a structural glazing design. The facade elements have been attached to the retaining profiles with 2-component-silicone and were individually mounted on 4 points in so-called bolt slides. The use of integrated diodes optimizes the yield of this BIPV facade.
