The problem

The Pictet Group's ambition was to achieve Platinium rating for the new building. The highest level of SNBS, LEED and WELL certification possible. 

Sustainability and economic viability for SNBS

Environmental and energy protection for LEED

Assessment of occupant well-being for WELL

It needed to be one of the most environmentally conscious buildings in Europe.

The solution

The building facade design is using a unique woven louvre material, known as KoolShade from SmartLouvre Technology.

It will bring immense benefits to the occupants of the building and to the environment itself.
