Second Skin Facade

The Second Skin Facade is a system consisting of two skins placed in such a way that air flows in the intermediate cavity. The ventilation of the cavity can be natural, fan supported or mechanical. Apart from the type of the ventilation inside the cavity, the origin and destination of the air can differ depending mostly on climatic conditions, the use, the location, the occupational hours of the building and the HVAC strategy. Often, for protection and heat extraction reasons during the cooling period, solar shading devices are placed inside the cavity
