In the center of the Lyon-Confluence district in Lyon, France, the public company in charge of the redevelopment of the area, SPL Lyon-Confluence, launched in 2011 an international design competition for the selection of a real estate developer to build a positive energy building on a 3.400 m2 piece of land called P plot. The team Bouygues Immobilier/SLC in association with Kengo Kuma from Japan has been selected by the jury for the design of a group of 3 buildings called HAKARI with dwellings, offices places and shops for a total floor area of 12.300 m2. In order to build a positive energy building to respect the requirements set by SPL Lyon-Confluence, the selected team decided to equip this building with 2 kinds of PV systems: a see-through PV facade on the MINAMI building (21 kWp) and a rooftop PV system on the roof of each of the 3 buildings (168 kWp). The official opening ceremony of this building took place on Thursday 17 September 2015.
