Say hello to your self-thinking and power generating facade
In the Binck Kade apartments, 470 windows will be accessorized with automated sun blind devices, operating with the electricity and data harnessed from the sun. This will optimize air and light conditions inside the room, as well as increase power-savings, leading to a reduced energy performance coefficient (EPC) of 0.1.
This building is situated by water and in a car-free neighbourhood, combining efforts towards healthy and sustainable living. The new Binck Kade complex, built on the former industrial estate Bickhorst, will be one of the first in its area to install our SmartWindows. The tenants of these smart and luxurious apartments will benefit from the increased comfort of automated sun blinds.
Built Future Ready: Let the Building do the Thinking
Our SmartWindow has been installed into a building that has been creatively developed in order to achieve new dimensions of technology, sustainability and user comfort.
We are thrilled that EDGE realises the value of our products, mission and collaboration whilst moving forward with our partnership.
EDGE Olympic raises new standards by retrofitting an existing office building into a sustainable ecosystem, eliminating the use of new raw materials and reducing waste. The building has therefore received various recognitions for its creative development and functionality, including an energy label A, the BREEAM rating ‘excellent’ and a WELL silver certification.
The Art of Scaling Up
The BOLD apartment inhabitants will be amongst the first in the world to enjoy the luxury of completely transparent electricity generating windows in their homes. 1,800 square meters of PHYSEE PowerWindows will be installed on the complete south-west and south-east facade of the newly built tower.
This project proves the readiness to increase the production of fully transparent, electricity generating windows, to the scale of mass production. Partly due to PowerWindows, the BOLD tower will be energy positive, making it a first-class example of sustainable living.
By investing in PowerWindows, VORM creates a sustainable and healthy living environment for the inhabitants of the BOLD tower, who will also be proud occupants of a building which has an EPC rating of -0.12.
Equipped with state-of-the-art technology and located in one of the fastest developing hotspots in Amsterdam, BOLD apartments and PowerWindows are a perfect match.
