The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center is a complex in the bay of Faliro in Athens, which includes new facilities for the National Library of Greece (NLG) and the Greek National Opera (GNO), as well as the 210,000 m² Stavros Niarchos Park. SUNOVATION developed the BIPV roof.

Aesthetic integration

A high aesthetic result is guaranteed by the uniform appearance of the BIPV modules and the gapless roof structure.A high aesthetic result is guaranteed by the uniform appearance of the BIPV modules and the gapless roof structure.A high aesthetic result is guaranteed by the uniform appearance of the BIPV modules and the gapless roof structure. The fixation is invisible.

Energy integration

The BIPV modules are estimated to produce around 2 GWh per year.

Technology integration

5,700 high-efficiency PV modules (eFORM clear) are integrated on the building roof. They are statically reinforced and frameless, made of a 3-ply glass composite conform to the enormous static, optical and performance technology requirements of the project. The BIPV roof is accessible and walkable, allowing easy installation, maintenance and cleaning activities.

Decision making

The BIPV roof fulfills the design wishes of the architect, who wanted a gapless roof surface with excellent aesthetics.
