Weser Tower

Bremen, N/A / Germany

Situated in immediate proximity to the historic centre of the city, at the perimeter of the "Überseequartier" Weser Tower stands as an icon for the positive, future oriented development of the city. The facade is designed to reduce the cooling load while, at the same time maximize the use of daylight. Sunshades provide a reduction of the solar load and allow the building's shell to adapt to the changes in weather conditions. The pre-fabricated curtain-wall creates a continuous glass exterior, emphasizing the core idea of a transparent building. Integrated within the set-back is a de-central air supply for the building. Fresh air is brought into the room either through an operable hatch or a heating/cooling convector within the floor. The façade skirt protects the air intake against wind and rain, allowing fresh air supply even in bad weather conditions. Natural ventilation is provided through the hatch in the façade set-back.
