Unique LED illuminated solar façade for an innovative company in Austria.

SUNOVATION, manufacturer of functional glass for architectural applications, is manufacturing the solar facades for the new Omicron headquarters in Vorarlberg in the company's colours.

Austrian company Omicron planned for its head office in Vorarlberg an innovative and sustainable facade in its blue, red and yellow logo colours. For this purpose, a very elegant glass facade with blue as the main colour has been designed with high-efficiency embedded solar cells.

The multifunctional glass elements are custom-made. For the exclusive design, colourful solar cells have been combined with special coloured glass, creating an architecturally sophisticated and colourfully homogenous surface. This is only opened by the specific structure of the solar cells and their reflections, through which an interesting contrast is created.

A special highlight of the energy-producing designer facade is the integrated LED colour display in the company colours. At night, this highlights the facade spectacularly and reflects the affinity for technology and innovative power of the company.

"With this solution, we have created a sensational and unique facade for our customer, as unique as the business itself," says Stefan Koch, head of product management at SUNOVATION Produktion.

In total, the facade consists of 510 glass-glass modules and 90 LED glass elements that are specially authorised for vertical installation in the facade. The substructure consists of an extruded section measuring approx. 1,000m and over 1,200 retaining brackets, embedded in the wooden wall.

The design as a "structural glazing" bonded joint enables a frameless suspension of the glass elements on the retaining profile that are each suspended at 4 points in so-called "bolt slides" in the substructure. The total production and installation time for this 780m² curtain wall took around 6 months.
