Thereby, the space between inner and outer façade is encapsulated. Dried air can be supplied with slight overpressure so that no condensate or dirt is deposited on the glass tubes. Furthermore, the tubes are self supporting and designed for high wind loads.
Another highlight of the façade is the special LED technology in which the lights can be switched separately. Since the climatic and static requirements for a building in Hong Kong are particularly high, the local building authorities required static proofs, reports and two performance mock-ups. Moreover, seele built different visual and performance mock-ups.
The project received BREAAM and LEED gold certification.
