World’s First Algae Powered Building by Splitterwerk

In the year 2013, the first building in the world with façade bioreactor was built. The house is on the territory of the expose center in Hamburg. The technological breakthrough lies in the integration of the system developed from Strategic Science Consult of Germany (SSC), Colt International, and the famous British engineering company Arup. The biggest merit for this object has the Austrian architects from splitterwerk .

The outside bioreactors look as element of structural glass, this façade system is called “Sunny sheet”, and it can be used in new and in old homes as well. These elements respond to sunlight, the glass panels are not only a source of energy, but also serve as a dynamic “blinds”, they darken the rooms. The close system gives a generic façade biomass and a heat in the house, and the heat is distributed with a heat exchanger, and in that way it can be used for heating water, and warming. This building on four floors with bioreactor façade was built by the local building company Otto Wulff.
