UN building in Copenhagen Denmark

The radial positioning of the building's 8 wings seem to look into all directions. The top of the banister panels is developed as handrail (30x50 mm) and in the lower third, lights are integrated. The slope ratio is 15/31. These 5-floor wings with white perforated aluminum louvre shutters are partially jutting the brown footing of polished brown steel they are built on. The 3m long perforated facade elements were developed especially for this building. They produce shadow to the office without blocking the view outside or the light coming in. The perforated sunblind panels can be set individually and create a vital, dynamic facade. The complete building gets supplied with filtered fresh air from outside which almost completely is cooled with sea water. Photovoltaic solar panels on the roof produce electricity and collected rainwater completely secures the supply of the toilet flush. This is one of the most energy-efficient buildings in the Country.
