Stadtwerke Konstanz



This building, known as the "energy cube", is the new Stadtwerke Konstanz Customer Center in Constance (D). It is built to generate more energy than it consumes over its useful life. The cube shape is chosen as the most energetically optimal geometric shape for a building. The energy is produced by sun and earth to provide heating and cooling systems. The high-performance of building are based on a customised solar facade. Alongside the transparent facade elements there are opaque surfaces that can be illuminated using different coloured LED lights.
