GSW Headquarters – Berlin, Germany

Posted in Built by Jimmy Principe on October 11, 2009

GSW Headquarters

Building: GSW Headquarters
Location: Berlin, Germany
Status: Complete
Architect: Sauerbruch-Hutton
Engineer: Arup

AE Interests: Because building’s long side faces east-west, the west side is a double skin facade.  Natural ventilation is drawn through the double skin to ventilate the building.  Also, for reducing solar gains, the building has automated coloured blinds that block the afternoon sun, yet maintain excellent daylighting
