Ecco Eco New York is one of the earliest buildings we designed at Bureau V. Combining branding and environmental performance, the signature element of the project is an intricate patterned facade comprised of custom parabolic solar panels and grassy landscape elements.
We recently finished the schematic design for another Ecco Eco project in LA. Like Ecco Eco NY, the building is intended to produce brand identity through the production of architecture that is sustainable, memorable, and proactive.
Integrating sustainable design elements into an ornamental patterned volume, the signature element of the building is a facade comprised of custom wind turbines that harness energy from passing winds as well as from wind produced by the building’s air displacement.
Here’s a quick peek at a wind turbine facade system we’re developing at Bureau V.
Here's a detail of our facade proposal for Ecco Eco.
Ecco Eco New York is a redesign and renovation of an existing structure to house the offices of Ecco Eco, an environmental design initiative. Currently in the research and design phase, the building is intended to take advantage of sustainable energy sources while providing an iconic presence to the environmental brand. Combining environmental performance with graphic design, the signature element of the project is an intricate patterned facade comprised of custom parabolic solar panels and landscape elements that produce electricity and improve the urban air quality.
I'm working on the design of a green facade comprised of landscape elements and parabolic solar panels that self orient towards the sun.
