Solar-powered Zamasport HQ produces more than half of the energy needs


After 3 years of development, the Italian architecture company Frigerio Design Team completed the new headquarters of manufacturing engineering firm Zamasport, a solar-powered mostly fabric-inspired building. Designed according to the architectural company’s “slow architecture” philosophy, the headquarters has a sustainable mindset that prioritizes the energy efficiency and health of workers with the use of natural, convenient light. Comfort and greenery in the entire building. The use of renewable energy systems, passive design Energy-saving principles and technologies have helped the Zamasport headquarters meet NZEB (Near Zero Energy Building) standards.

Inspired by Zamasport’s work in the fashion industry, the architects created a facade reminiscent of fabric. The three sides of the building are enclosed in prefabricatedColored, concrete slabs – designed with thermal and ventilation openings – mimic the creases and creases of clothing. The main facade is completely glazed with vertical, winding sunscreens to evoke hanging ribbons.

To meet the NZEB standards, the architects equipped the Zamasport HQ one photoelectricity the system is capable of producing up to 50,000 kWh per year as well as radiant heating and cooling. Passive design principles and energy-saving technologies, such as LEDs and sensors, help reduce a building’s energy use. The Building Automation System always oversees mechanical and electrical systems.
