The photovoltaic glass has been integrated in the form of a skylight, thus providing the building with an air-conditioned swimming pool. The skylight has an original fairground switchback-like shape, thanks to the curved wooden structure on which the nearly 72 photovoltaic glass modules rest.

 

The glass employed is triple-laminated, made of amorphous silicon, with a semi-transparency degree of 20% (L vision). Due to this, the thermal and acoustic comfort of the users of this pool has been increased, as the interior temperature is maintained constant.

 

Furthermore, it filters out up to 99% of the ultraviolet radiation, an extra which protects those who enjoy this wonderful swimming pool with sea views from the sun’s rays.

 

This skylight has a total installed power capacity of 6.59 kWp, and enables the residence to generate approximately 10,595 kWh per year.

 

“The visual effect of the photovoltaic glass modules is surprising. The clients are delighted with this product”.

Ken Lin, architect at Costa Brown Architecture.
