Tourism Office

This is the recovery of a church belonging to the heritage of the XI century to create a tourist office. Three bow-windows were relaized on which is integrated with a PV system. A double insulated glass is mounted behind the solar system with an air gap of 11cm between the two parties. The modules have a semi-transparent layer anti-reflective brown specifically chosen for architectural reasons.
