This building’s circular shape and glazed walls allow the energy of the sun to be exploited to the full. Whenever possible, therefore, the building will rely on natural light alone.
In summer, the building will be protected against solar radiation by overhanging roofs, the depth of which vary depending on their orientation.
Curtaining for the external facades was chosen to ensure optimum protection against glare combined with maximum transparency.
A heavy satin material was preferred for the offi ces, so that the window frontages could be closed off and the users isolated from the outside world. The Lerida fabric also improves the noise absorption level.
