Designed by Dominique Perrault, the DC Tower 1 is Austria’s highest building, combining sleek, cutting edge architectural design with advanced green functionality. Engineered to include energy-saving systems throughout, it has a Gold LEED certification and is powered using only green electricity. Every aspect of the building has been carefully considered to ensure the lowest energy consumption.
Weighing one-tenth of a traditional steel panel radiator, and containing only 10% of the water, the 1.536 pieces of Jaga Mini Freestanding is a highly efficient, super conductive system. Its use of Low-H2O technology means that emissions are reduced by 10-15% and the radiators react three times as fast to fluctuations in temperature.
Completed in 2014, the tower is a distinctive urban landmark for Vienna, innovative in its design and fully equipped to be sustainable.
The radiators safeguard from heat loss and complement the ethos of the building, providing an energy efficient and stylish heating solution.
