Facade engineering

A building’s façade should filter sound, light, heat and cold in such a way that the indoor climate is appropriate for the activities taking place inside the building.

At Ramboll we use simulation programs early in the design phase to help test how different types of façades will work with the interior of the building. Our façade design considers manufacturing, construction and use.

Harpa Concert and Conference Center

Harpa Concert and Conference Center: Designed in 3D

Harpa Concert and Conference Center has been hailed as a symbol of Iceland’s economic dynamism and has since it opened in 2011 hosted a range of world-class congresses and concerts. The concert and conference center is part of a larger master plan for the area around Reykjavik’s harbour, intended to attract tourists and artists. But the building is more than merely beautiful; however, it is also CO2-neutral, obtaining its energy from Iceland’s geothermal resources.
