Prominent new glass building without the greenhouse effect
Probably the nicest-looking solar shading, says the architect. It’s climate friendly too.
Kopenhagen Fur has added a smart, new building to its head office, made entirely from glass and aimed at impressing the company’s many visitors. That’s why the architect wanted something special.
The architect was able to unite the visual expression and the functional purpose of the building without limits. Glass integrated with MicroShade’s micro lamellas, which shade against the sun, allow the building to have an open, south-facing glass façade with effective solar shading. The micro lamellas allow the natural sunlight into the room, providing light but blocking the heat. Consequently, Kopenhagen Fur can use the room
all year round without incurring high cooling costs.
MicroShade® is integrated into the glass, making the installation of external solar shading unnecessary, for example horizontal or vertical panels. On the contrary, there is a clear view and the architect’s idea with the forest theme is inlaid in the glass with a special leaf pattern in the lamellas.
Probably the nicest-looking solar shading, claims the architect. The glass with integrated solar shading was the obvious choice.
MicroShade® makes it possible to construct a south-facing glass building, while also complying with building regulation requirements for indoor climate and energy consumption. The contractor gave a lot of thought to the environmental aspect, resulting in climate-friendly calculations.
