Sheet-metal Facade by Novelis

According to Paragon Architects, with a surface perforation of 30 to 35 %, up to 70 % of the solar radiation on the east and west facades can be shielded. In the evening and at night, the interior lighting of the building shines through the perforated facade. 4686 m2 of pre-painted aluminium in the metallic colour Sunrise Silver with a thickness of 2 mm were used. By combining large glass fronts with perforated facade panels, 57 % of the complex is supplied with daylight and at the same time the electricity consumption of the building is reduced.
