Onyx Solar® has taken part in the refurbishment of the historic building Le Petit Écho de la Mode in cooperation with SPIE, a French company devoted to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of energy facilities.

Located in the picturesque town of Châtelaudren, in Brittany (France), the building preserves the spirit of Eiffel with its metal structure, and is considered to be a national heritage. The refurbishment of this building, a Tourism Development and Culture Centre of the locality, has followed a sustainable approach.

A photovoltaic skylight, comprised of low-emissivity (or low-e) glass with a semi-transparency degree of 10% (M vision), enables this facility to generate over 42 kWh per square metre per year. This solution enables the entry of daylight and improves energetic efficiency, while reducing the Culture Centre’s electricity bill and HVAC energy demands.

Le Petit Écho de la Mode was a famous women’s fashion magazine which for decades printed over a million copies per week. It had as many as 200 employees working in the printing process and in the manufacture of sewing patterns until it closed in 1983.
