SPRING / 2017
From Adv. Curtain Wall
A monolithic, louvered curtain wall designed for a small scale, infill data center in Luleå, Sweden. Driven by passive heating and cooling strategies, the variable spacing of louvers across the facade draws cold exterior air into the server spaces at the first and second floor, while heat from the servers is cycled into the working spaces above. Moist, warm air is exhausted into the upper facade cavity, condensing on the louvers, slowly patinating the facade over time.
