SummaryThe health-centre "Alzheimer Project", promoted by the Spanish Reina Sofía Foundation, is a national reference health, training and research centre devoted to the Alzheimer illness. It comprises several buildings such as a hospital, a daily outpatient's department and two buildings for training and research, with a total area of 18.500 m2. In the highest building (research building), and therefore with a highly representative value, a PV façade made of 400 PV lamellas has been integrated as a second skin for sun and thermal protection to the building. 3 different types of lamellas have been custom-designed, in order to be optimally integrated into the building envelope.
