Facing South, the cladding of this façade is made of white lacquered glass defining a large horizontal frame. Within the white frame a double layered open skin façade is developed. Sun shaded and protected by alternated photovoltaics glass panels, a thermal high performance glazed façade is developed in retreat. A gallery is created between those two layers adding sun shading benefits and easy walkable maintenance access.
