- The museum has a compact building form which minimizes the body shape coefficient and reduces the heat loss of the external structure of the building;
- Pollution during the construction process is reduced due to the use of prefabricated modules;
- The object has an all-glass wooden facade on the south side in combination with a fully movable, adjustable, intelligent exterior shading system. According to the recorded indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, the heat is maximized in winter and the building is protected from excess solar radiation in the summer;
- The roofing on the north side improves the insulation performance of the outer protective structure.
At the same time, LUTHER Design developed real-time data acquisition devices for environmental monitoring inside and outside the building. Among other things, this measure allows the measurement of indoor and outdoor temperature, humidity, particulate matter (PM 2.5), the angle of incidence of sunlight and the energy consumption of fresh air devices. The collected data can then be viewed in real time on a display for the visitors of the museum and give a good impression of the comfort, the achieved energy saving and the considerable economic advantages of the passive house.
