Building Technology winner: Skypark Business Centre South by Aravia Design & +FUN
This business centre for the development of Luxembourg Airport aims to promote both sustainability and work-life balance for the transient worker. The complex is defined by a semi-transparent louvred skin that acts as both a sun shading device and acoustic barrier, as well as promoting passive ventilation. Aesthetically the façade adds complexity and depth to the building elevation. Natural light penetration is another key element of the project, which features a controlled building depth, and voids that allow sunlight to reach even the lowest basement level. The project incorporates public spaces and facilities that add value for the surrounding public realm and contribute to an active work style.
