SULZER PUMPS, SUZHOU
This energy-efficient building uses sustainable materials and advanced technology for energy saving. The design combines traditional Chinese elements and principles with a functional industrial complex. The sun blinds of the curtain wall facade of the office building are automatically controlled and integrated into a Building Management System controlling also the light and air con systems.
The office building is designed along the principles of a three-dimensional Suzhou garden, with different levels of the offices being connected by sculptural concrete stairs placed in indoor gardens. All wooden floors and ceilings are made of recycled wood from demolished buildings.
