Being world market leader in the fields of inverters, the company SMA Solar was in need of a training centre in striking distance to the existing facility. The new building was built on stilts on an existing parking area. Construction and design resulted out of the site’s proximity to the river Fulda and energetic isolated operation. Large-format integrated photovoltaic elements are acting as roof and façade. Thus the building’s envelope consisting of solar panels and ALUCOBOND® in Colour Cream unifies technical demands with the aesthetics of a pending light structure. Material and construction of wall, roof and soffit are fading. In the upper floor the lobby, training rooms and building equipment serve as showroom to demonstrate the building technology. The building is independent of the public energy supply and is working energetically self-sufficient.
