Aller House

The Aller House is a large, ten-storey steel and glass building with two storeys in the basement. A vast inner courtyard is also part of the building.

An energy efficient building has been created by applying energy glass and solar protection and giving the building a triangular shape, which minimizes the surface area compared to the building’s volume.

Most of the building's heat intake is controlled by solar curtains and canvasses. On the inside of the facade and beneath the roof are solar canvasses, which are automatically drawn when it is necessary to block the sun.
