OMA’s Pixelated Stadskantoor Skyscraper Scores BREEAM Excellent
The building’s glass facade is embedded with what the architects refer to as a ‘translucent insulation’ to provide maximum daylight with minimal heat loss or gain. The core of the building holds two large atriums connected to a HVAC system, which will store heat in the summer for winter use and vice versa, presumably using a thermal storage system and heat pump. OMA’s efforts earned them the green building certification of excellent through Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method before the project has even broken ground.
