Case study: 400 South Record Street, Dallas, USA
Practical yet stylish
Two large horizontal projections were designed and manufactured by Levolux, not only to shield the building from the sun resulting in a naturally cool and comfortable environment for occupants, but to create an interesting architectural feature, transforming this 17-storey office building as part of a comprehensive refurbishment.
Design led solutions, custom made systems
A canopy of fins extends around the building at ground floor level, to shade glazed areas. As a special feature, the fins above the building’s main entrance are twisted, allowing them to continue at high level into the reception area. Up at roof level, a second canopy of fins provides shade for a new ‘Sky Garden’. The entire system and solution was designed, manufactured and supplied by Levolux.
