Solar facade in Zwirnerstrasse, Zurich

Project overview

A panelled photovoltaic system consisting of just two different module types highlights the cost-reduction potential of photovoltaics in facades. The photovoltaics are so well integrated into the building that they are almost impossible to spot at first glance. In addition to the photovoltaic system, a hybrid box – a combination of a heat pump and a cogeneration unit – supplies the building with electricity and heat.
