SKALA BiPV solar active modules, Bronze 3001

Seeking a solar power solution that wouldn’t compromise on aesthetics,  a+r Architekten specified the SKALA facade system for this mixed-use commercial building in South-West Germany.

The new build, seven-storey property was constructed with wood and concrete, then clad in SKALA’s thin-film  BiPV, solar-active modules.  

A total of 634 SKALA modules, in the stunning bronze colour option, were installed across the building’s 659m2 façade.

The result is Westspitze,  a striking building with a shimmering bronze exterior which generates 50.43 MWh of clean solar energy every year, thanks to the innovative SKALA system’s 82.42 kWp output.
