A ventilation system manages the heating and cooling of the pavilion. Great flexibility is ensured since we can react very quickly to changes using the ventilation system. The excess room heat is used in combination with a thermal solar panel to heat drinking water.
The buffer zone is a traditional element of Swiss building structures and is typical for the alpine climate. During the winter, the passively generated heat can be used to reduce the heating energy of the adjoined rooms. In summertime, the buffer zone is an expansion of the spatiality and the heat will be re-extracted. Instead of high mechanization, passive strategies guarantee comfortable conditions for the pavilion.
The photovoltaic system has the aim of generating as much energy as possible in combination with limited performance. That is why we use a sun-tracking system. In the your+ project, we seek solutions that achieve large energy yields per square metre, have little-to-no cell aging, with high performance in high temperatures and operate at low cost and with a low energy input.
To ensure as efficient operation as possible, all consumers must be networked with each other. That allows devices to be switched on when there is enough available power. Excess energy is temporarily stored to lessen any power supply peaks from the photovoltaic system. That energy is used to alleviate consumption peaks for devices and thereby ease the burden on the public power grid.
