daylight funnel

December 9, 2012

TVZEB (traverso-vighy zero energy building) is an experimental building brought to fruition by virtue of a cooperative endeavour between the traverso-vighy architecture studio and the University of Padua to meet new EU standards requiring that all new public buildings from 2020 to be zero-energy buildings.  Natural daylight plays a fundamental role in the project both in terms of indoor climatic conditions and in terms of visual comfort and wellbeing of the building occupants.The building was conceived as a “daylight funnel” facing south, incorporating a design that maximizes sunlight exposure during the winter months and excludes direct radiation entirely during summer months.

Tvzeb, è un edificio sperimentale ad energia zero, ragionato per rispondere alla Direttiva Europea 2010/31/EU. La forma dell’edificio è stata disegnata per massimizzare l’ingresso di radiazione solare diretta nei mesi invernali e per escluderla completamente nei mesi estivi. La facciata Sud è caratterizzata dal portico solare e dai tendaggi filtranti automatizzati del piano terra.
