A dynamic and adaptable perforated facade for a triangular landmark
The 5-floor building is designed by Henning Larsen Architects and finding sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions was a key point in the construction.
More than 4,500 m2 of perforated aluminium sheets have been used to create an innovative and environmentally friendly facade, with sun screens that automatically adjust according to light and heat levels.
The triangular motif has been repeated throughout the building in different forms and shapes, giving the construction a special dynamic effect and openness. RMIG has extensive experience in finding environmentally friendly solutions with sun screens that have innovative perforated designs, making them both functional and inspirational. The perforation pattern used for the facade at SDU is designed and adapted to the sun screen’s opening angle of 30 degrees, which gives the optimal balance of light and energy in and out of the building. This means that those using the building can benefit from the correct amount of light, as well as enjoying a comfortable indoor climate in the rooms along the facade. At the same time, the perforated and transparent facade ensures a strong interaction between the building and its surroundings.
