Surrounding space is currently experiencing transformation
from a predominantly production and warehouse area to higher
systems of spatial use. The new programme draws the entire
city area closer to downtown urban zones. Complex comprises
three apartment buildings and and an office building, a business
volume to the north and a series of retail spaces along the
street allow for quieter residential programmes to develop
in the middle, in quiet green areas along the channel. In
the center of the plot, three low residential sections are
positioned, which open their outdoor spaces to the south and
connect with residential programs, on the other side of the
channel. Facades in printed plaster envelop three sides of
the building and connect to the Eastern - urban facades, clad
in white stone of various textures. The building's footprint
has been designed as environmentally friendly. Location and
orientation of each building have been adjusted to benefit
well from good natural lighting conditions from east and west.
The building incorporates geothermal heat exchangers within
source structural piles, which are equipped with geosondes.
Energy from geosondes is used for heating and cooling of buildings
and preparation of sanitary water. Sanitary water for the
buildings is partially also prepared by solar heat exchangers.
Solar energy also additionally supports heating of buildings.
Geothermal heat exchangers are connected to the geothermal
accumulation volume of soil under the building so that it
is also possible to run the system without using the heat
pump on days when pumping the heat transfer medium under the
building suffices. Central intelligent supervisory system
controls all vital energy distribution elements of the office
building, including energy recuperation and ventilation systems
and all that with respect to current input economic parameters.
The building is is expected to reduce the carbon footprint
for 31.060 kg of CO2 every year.
