Structural innovation & sustainability

 

  • lux-Airport aims to create a reference building concerning sustainability and environmental awareness
  • The wooden structure, photovoltaic, rainwater collection, high performing facade, green roofs and terraces, energy reduction due to heat retention by a green layer
  • Timber construction – very significant reduction in carbon footprint compared to steel or concrete
  • The use of green terraces turns existing sealed parking surfaces into green roofs
  • Double facade – significant reduction of noise and energy use, both for heating and cooling
  • Building geometry – optimization for daylight means less artificial lighting required
