Exploring a Dynamic Facade


Ernst Giselbrecht + Partner present the Kiefer Technic Showroom, an office building and exhibition space with a dynamic facade that changes to outdoor conditions, optimizing internal climate, while allowing users to personalize their own spaces with user controls.

The shell construction of the facade consists of solid brick walls, reinforced concrete ceilings and floors, and steel encased concrete columns. The facade consist of aluminums posts and transoms with protruding bridges for maintenance, with an EIFS-facade in white plaster. The sun screen operates on electronic shutters of performated aluminum panels.

The building presents a new facade as the day progresses, defining it as a dynamic sculpture that regulates the internal environment of the building. Check out this video to see how the facade actually operates:
