double skin facade

Majunga Tower

The “double skin” facade offers numerous benefits: plenty of natural daylight floods into the offices, but they are also protected by an integrated sun shade system. Energy consumption is thereby cut both for lighting and air-conditioning. 

On the southern side, loggias and plants are used behind glass slats. These loggias form hollows in the facade repeated the full height of the tower, each recessed a little further than the last, contrasting with the smooth, spare surfaces of the other facades. This new typology brings an original dimension to the tower.
