When horticultural company Floréac engaged evr-Architecten to rebuild its headquarters, the architects put the whole lot under glass. While the offices and staff areas of a horticultural business usually flank the glasshouses, evr-Architecten put them in the middle, around a patio that tempers the rigid logic of the space and gives the sun free play. A computer-controlled system regulates the internal climate of the giant glasshouse: glass panels slide open and shut and screens keep the sun out. The energy needs of the office areas were kept to a minimum by the building's construction, structure and foundation: the glasshouse provides heat, concrete core activation cooling and a closed-loop ground heat exchanger both heat and cooling. In addition, the design is in perfect harmony with the location and the type of business. The architects even worked out a complete traffic plan to service Floréac's logistical needs.
