Sustainable and beautiful? Yes, it is possible! Solarix has been commissioned by the Municipality of Middelburg to make the city theater in the historic city more sustainable. With this project, the municipality wants to demonstrate that it is also possible to generate sustainable energy on an architecturally valuable building in a historic environment.
The colour options of the Solarix Line Collection have been used for the design, where the lines provide a subtle colour allusion to stage curtains. The vertically placed panels decorate both sides of the main entrance of the Schouwburg-like stage curtains.
In the designing process Solarix also took the existing architecture as a starting point, so that the matt coloured solar facade panels fit seamlessly into the environment. This way a dynamic façade is created that ensures an extra-high energy yield.
