This project regards the expansion of the existing plant n°2 of sensor manufacturer Elobau in the Allgäu region, Germany. The building's architecture evolves the design principles of the existing building changing the quality requirements and embracing the “elobau green idea” of net positive energy building. The additional space is powered by a sophisticated combination of photovoltaic’s, heat recovery, and micro gas turbines. The PV panels are installed on an independent steel structure that characterized the intervention as a solar shading system. Most of PV panels are opaque. Some panels, positioned in correspondence of openings, have a transparence of about 50% permitting sunlight passage.
