Sun Protection

„It is easier to work by daylight“

 

The designers of this office building in Berlin applied this phrase in regard to light, air and temperature during the ergonomic creation of the façade. They devised a sun protection system with slats made from expanded metal which facilitated a multiple usage: daylight economy, thermal insulation, sun protection and, last but not least, an unmistakeable appearance.

The myriad of   individual domes which are created during the expansion of the metal function as innumerable sun protection slats. At close range the individual slats appear transparent in all directions: from the outside to the inside and from the inside to the outside.
