The design further focuses on the use of sustainable, recyclable and circular construction materials.
Spatial efficiency and future-proofing are achieved through the use of flexible floor plans.
The sustainable concept for Nion further responds intelligently to the weather and actual demand.
It incorporates a photovoltaic facade, rainwater management, geothermal heating and cooling (30%-40% cooling / 70% heating), smart building management, demand-based air conditioning and LED lighting, energy recuperating elevators, e-charging stations with intelligent load management and green and open work environments.
Solar gain is minimised by way of a 50% closed facade.
The building is also designed to be socially sustainable, with specific programming that encourages, communication, gathering and knowledge sharing.
Additionally, semi-public use is incorporated by way of dining establishments, a bakery and a café on the ground and first upper floor, alongside the inclusion of partially public urban space in front of the base building.
