3.3 ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN OVERVIEW N

SOLAR GAIN

BAKERY

30°

Each of the spaces in the building has southern exposure for solar gain. The wisteria trellis shades these facades during the summer months while letting light penetrate the spaces in winter. The storage cathedral has large glazed facades that allow for solar gain but are equipped with louvers to mitigate the intense summer sun.

The wall of the breakwater acts as wind break against the very strong wind arriving primarily from the West. The buildings are also arranged with the shortest length but tallest height facades facing the wind. This means the rest of the building is largely sheltered from the wind. The entrance is located on the East side of the building sheltered from the wind.

WAVE PROTECTION The breakwater’s primary function is to mitigate the large waves from the North West. The energy of these waves is harnessed by the breakwater wave energy collectors. The building itself is sheltered from the waves by the breakwater protecting it from large swells.

RAIN WATER COLLECTION The large roofscapes act as rain water collection basins to make use of the high levels of precipitation found on the West Coast of Denmark. The rain water is collected on the roofs and directed down pipes where it is filtered through a gravity assisted carbon filtration system and stored in large tanks in the breakwater wall.

CONCLUSION The environmental context of the surrounding site is a primary driver of the masterplan’s formal development. Most influential are the high waves, strong winds, ample rain fall, and scarce winter sun.
