“The Butterfly”, a contemporary architecture and green footprint office building

“The Butterfly”, an office building in Athens owned by Noval S.A., is a composition of old and new parts, which now form a single compound with particular characteristics. This compound is being defined by contemporary qualities of city planning, bioclimatic design, and aesthetics.
 
Agapanthus, rosemary and feathergrass emerge from the metal floor of the cantilever and a series of vertical specially designed shutters of etalbond® FR aluminium composite panels provide shade to the building, in selected parts, protecting it from solar radiation during the morning and afternoon hours. The panels form an undulated succession which becomes denser or sparser depending on the shading needs arising from the sun’s movement. Thus, they form an envelope of elements which rise in response to the environmental conditions. Such vertical elements together with the horizontal zones of the stories represent the minimum architectural materials of an austere and plain composition of the building’s façades that keep on changing with the light of daytime. Furthermore, they have been designed in a special asymmetric trapezoid form so as to better reflect the light, creating colour nuances that resemble folds.
 
Elval Colour is always seeking to achieve the highest quality for its products aiming at providing excellent services to its customers.
