Hikari Building Lyon
The Hikari project (Light in Japanese) remains the first positive energy building (PBE) in France, combining offices, shops and housing. It is designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. 12.800m² building is made up of three buildings. By storing and pooling the energy produced, Hikari is able to provide its own energy for the 3 blocks. Photovoltaic panels are located on the south façade of the MINAMI building, to benefit from seasonal light energy.
