Assignment: Research & Design project for the refurbishment of the facade of the Rijkswaterstaat Westraven building in Utrecht. In the development the facade, construction and climate system should be integrated.
Solution: By replacing the excisting façade with an aluminium-glass façade and introducing a second
façade of louvres, all requirements can be met in an integrated intelligent façade design. The
louvre façade is used for sun protection, noise protection, bringing more light in the back of the
offices, pre-heating air, producing energy (with PV cells), allowing sight and preventing glare.
This project was designed as educational project within the Architecture, Urbanism & Building Sciences master program (1st semester) at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft).
