Yin Yang shape – with a Texlon® ETFE system
schmidt hammer lassen architects worked closely with the tenant, MOE, during development of the Office Buddinge project to develop a dynamic office environment that also reflects their corporate brand. MOE is a Danish engineering company. The architects created an impressive office building in a Yin Yang shape – with a Texlon® ETFE system.
The building strikes a perfect balance between being aesthetically beautiful and environmentally friendly. The atrium makes use of a Texlon® ETFE cladding system which has been printed to minimize solar gain while maximizing natural daylight. The use of Texlon® ETFE offers significant benefits compared to other transparent cladding systems on both new buildings and refurbishment projects. The low levels of embodied energy, combined with its adaptability in terms of natural ventilation, thermal insulation and light transmittance, makes Texlon® ETFE an incredibly sustainable construction product.
Environmental Product Declaration
The Texlon® ETFE system has an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) based on ISO 14025 and EN 15804. It is possible to insert Texlon® EPD data directly into the DGNB building certification system. This office building was pre-certified as DGNB silver and also meets the strict requirements of the Danish 2015 energy classification.
