Window of (Circular) Opportunity

Exploration and design guide for circular aluminium window and door systems

Architects need a wider range of window- and façade products with circularity and objective design guides that illustrate the circularity of construction products. Reynaers Aluminium and VITO are cooperating to adapt aluminium window and door systems to make them more reusable.

A quick scan, two specific cases and a focus group (architects, circular experts and industry professionals) form the basis for improving the circularity of the current systems. Through co-creative workshops, the needs of architects and opportunities in the chain are translated into adapted technical solutions. These circular solutions are then presented in a complete design guide tailored to the architect.
