Solar Plexus

Powered by the sun, this new mixed use development is located on a busy corner in the center of Missoula. The first floor holds offices and assembly space for a local solar panel installer. Three rustic modern apartments occupy the second floor commanding huge views of the surrounding mountains. The gently sloping roof is entirely covered by a photovoltaic solar panel array which generates much of the power for the facility. Bifacial solar panels form the entry awnings providing both protection from the elements and additional power.
