This BiPV example regards a building renovation in Riehn, in Canton Basel. In 2004 Riehen was the first community to be awarded with the «European Energy Award Gold» for its energy policies. The intervention is a perfect union between energetic and aesthetic requirements. The old façade cladding has been replaced by polycrystalline grey and blue cells, introducing a new and not conventional aspect of the building and creating a brilliant effect.
