The renovation becomes an opportunity for re-cladding the whole building envelope introducing both a new image as well as a new active and selective building skin. The southward facade is transformed in a solar capting surface. PV shading devices, consisting in white translucent glazed and semitransparent modules, are mounted onto a moveable structure able to be oriented (on the horizontal axis) in different ways maximizing solar potential and to properly control solar radiation that are indoor solar gains in summer and winter.
