The Geneva headquarters of ST Microelectronics has a mechanically-ventilated double skin facade called Permasteelisa Interactive Wall®.
Opting for a highly transparent building envelope means that occupant comfort and energy consumption become top priority concerns from the earliest stage of design. Intelligent application of shading devices will enable the building envelope to act as a filter between indoor and outdoor environments, letting in as much daylight as possible, while reducing solar gains as required.
Permasteelisa’s Blue Technology® provides an integrated design approach: building envelope and environmental systems are part of a single synergic solution, providing transparency without jeopardising occupant comfort and energy consumption. Moreover, buildings costs are the same as for a similar building with conventional technology.
Double skin facades are an...
