Integrated Building Concept
Buildings no longer act as ridged objects that need a large heating installation in winter and big cooling equipment during summer to “correct” the indoor climate, but buildings become an additional “living” skin around the occupants keeping them in contact with nature, but at the same time protecting them when necessary.
The most important integration-related problem is the building HVAC installation.
HVAC is one of the most interesting topics in terms of technological progress. As technology advances, HVAC systems become more expensive and complicated, making operation more difficult for users in terms of maintenance and repair. It is therefore difficult to integrate building technologies with HVAC technologies.
Smart Facade is highly integrated façade. It means that all the heating-cooling and ventilation function of the building fully integrated with façade. As far as we know, it is the first building in Europe with this feature.
