EVA architecture designs flowing glass-covered sustainable building in the netherlands

transparency is a core value of the organization that will occupy EVA architecture’s ‘the curve’ office building in the netherlands and has been therefore an important starting point for the design. the all-glass facade maximizes visibility and light penetration. the shape of the building follows in essence the existing building lines of the adjacent buildings, the facade jumps in and out where an exception is requested by program or function. the facade rim also detaches from the rest of the facade at specific points and provides canopies to limit sun exposure.

on the corner of the intersection and the best view, the second-floor cantilevers to accentuate the corner.< /strong> the same floor jumps back at the opposite side of dutch based firm EVA architecture‘s ‘the curve’ to create a roof garden and mark the main entrance. the electricity for the entire building is generated by solar panels. the mossedum grass roof improves infiltration of rainwater. CO2-controlled zone air handling units and presence detectors for lighting ensure that no energy is wasted. the office building will have an energy label A ++++ and perform 70% better in energy preservation than is required by official regulations.
