Westraven office complex wins Daylight award

Friday, May 23, 2008

Cepezed's Westraven wins Daylight Award: “a metamorphosis of a sick building to a clear, transparent, state of the art building that performs an exemplary in every field.”
The Westraven office complex is an intricate and large-scale combination of new and existing construction for various sections of the Dutch Department of Public Works.
Westraven is a large-scale project with numerous sustainable solutions, of which the abundant penetration of daylight is just one illustration.
Much attention has been devoted to realizing perfect equilibrium between low energy consumption and an optimum working climate. Therefore, for example thermically active floors have been used.
The conservatories also work as climate buffers and the artificial lighting adjusts itself automatically to the colour and intensity of the incidence of daylight. A revolutionary feature is the innovative second-skin façade of open-weave, teflon-coated glass fibre.
