The Happy Tear is a building whose form will be shaped by its need to moderate the weather and create a low-energy input environment within, whereby highly efficient layouts and building systems will aim to offer class-leading productivity and building efficiency features.
We have designed ways to better optimise the light at various hours of the day to create a pleasant, and livable atmosphere, and supply only the additional lighting needed to meet EU standards. We have designed means to significantly reduce the surplus solar thermal input, and passive cooling technologies with the respective cooling systems being rated for less loads, offering lower purchase and running costs. We have addressed the views towards the public thoroughfare by placing a series of conference rooms projecting from the east-facing facade and reaching towards the trees-establishing a relationship between the functions of the building that will be visible from the street and the impressive row of large trees that will face the conference rooms.
The name of this building-the Happy Tear-strives to be highly functional and sensitive, cost effective to operate, as ecological as financially feasible in today’s market situation and memorable.
The Design team is headed by Andreas and Zoe Lordos & Associates. Structural design and civil engineering has been undertaken by Earthquake Protected Structures. The challenge of integrating the building’s Mechanical functions to deliver effective performance has been undertaken by Christoforou, Katsambas and Associates. The Building Electrical systems that together provide high quality infrastructure and operation have been designed by Meltec.
