LOUVER SCREEN

-Aluminum Louver screen
protects mainly against
transmitted solar radiation, which
typically accounts for about 80%
of the total solar load coming
through windows. While blocking
the sunrays and offering shade
and privacy, ventilation is still
possible.
-When the sun is above an angle
of 31 degrees, 100% shade is
provided. This becomes less
when the sun is lower, but stops
at 51% shade when the sun is at
an angle of 0 degrees. The
space behind the Louverscreens
is not completely dark because
of the reflections and useful
daylight coming through at
angles between 0 and 31
degrees.
-Without any moving parts and
small use of material, Louver
screens are next to effective
also very efficient. The black
finished variation offers an
even higher efficiency
because of reduced reflection
of both direct and indirect
rays. Louver screens are all
through corrosion-resistant
and require a minimized
maintenance. Maximum sheet
size 3500x6000mm.

SUSTAINABLE CHESTNUT WOOD

-Chestnut wood that can be
used as an alternative to
hardwood. Untreated,
chestnut wood is a
sustainable and renewable
material. It's grown in
special forests in England
and France. During
production and the use of
chestnut wood, no soil
pollution is generated. The
wood is used for camp
sheeting, forestry, dune
protection, gardens and
fences.

TOPAKUSTIK

Topakustik units are made of
wood. They absorb the full
range of frequencies from low
to high and so provide a
refined acoustic system for
wall and ceiling finishes.
Topakustik is available in
many different grooved
patterns with varying acoustic
properties and can be
supplied as tongued-and-
grooved planks for a joint free
surface treatment or as
panels for cabinet fronts or
movable or fixed ceilings.

ADMINISTRATIVE BUILDING AND TOWN HALL
-Located in Lalin, Pontevedra,
Spain
-The architect wanted to
produce a building that
encouraged the intersection
roads, people, goods and ideas.
-The level of public space is
elevated 6 meters (20 feet)
above a ground level.
-The series of paths in the
village stretches upwards,
becoming ramps and stairs that
converge on the new spaces.
-The structure has been placed
at the buildings perimeter in
order to obtain diaphanous
spaces without intermediate
pillars.
-It is a dense woven matrix of
steel welded in rigid knots and
triangular figures, and forms a
structural framework wrapping
itself around the buildings
different wings.
-Is a casing three-dimensional
white lace around the entire
building.
-The most exposed faades
avoid excessive direct sun light
in the summer.
-The upper level of the building
and the east and west faades
have a deeper structure, and in
some parts the density of the
lace is also greater to optimize
passive energy.
COMMERCIAL HIGH-RISE
-Located in Dubais
commercial marina district

-thirty five storey, 150 metre
(500 foot) tall

-the differentiated spaces
reorganized the
hierarchical structure of the
standard company office.

spatial hierarchy and
relationship, thus fostering
dynamic relations
between the formation
and companys
employees.

-The intention is to
increase the potential for

negotiation.
