Integrated thin-shell roof

The roof system will be very lightweight and extremely thin, less than 70mm, including both a thin shell structure and building systems (SuAT, BRG). The large surface area of the shell is used for heat transfer into the space using a hydronic low temperature heating and cooling system. Custom, doubly curved vacuum insulation will be used to achieve a low thermal transmittance at very small thickness. On top, optimally distributed, high-efficiency thin-film photovoltaic cells are used for solar energy generation (SuAT).
