KEYWORDS: water storage, façade, energy storage, system

PERFORMANCE: energy storage

The idea of a liquid façade is not new; water inside a façade layer absorbs solar energy, thus reducing the temperature of the indoor space.
This principle can be further developed by adding a second water-bearing façade layer.
In the outer layer, water cools the façade. The thermal energy gain can be used on the inside to heat the room. Depending on the season and current weather conditions, the two streams of water can be regulated to create an optimum indoor climate throughout the year.
