Codan

In cooperation with Hvidt Architects, we developed a system of interior vertical pivoting shutters for control of the daylight and acoustics for the Codan's auditorium in their corporate headquarters .   The system consists of 41 electrically Pivoting shutters that ensure silent and efficient adjustment of the daylight and the acoustics. The pivoting shutters are made of ash wood, perforated on one side, and with rubber tongues along the edges, ensuring total blackout when the louvers are closed.   The system is an integral element in the architecture of the room and the building....

NNE Head Office

We designed and produced the exterior vertical pivoting shutters for NNE's head office in Virum in collaboration with Over Byen Arkitekter.   The 15 motorized pivoting shutters provide solar and heat shading for the large windows of the reception area. The pivoting shutters measure 5.7 meters in height and have 55 centimeters wide slats. They are constructed as a sandwich structure with double frames of anodized aluminum enclosing zinc panels with a 33% perforation.   The drive system consists of electric motors and worm gears placed in the bottom rail and hidden in the facade cladding. The pivoting shutters are fully rotatable around their vertical axis and controlled via the building's BMS system.   Photo credit: Over Byen Arkitekter and Art Andersen & Copenhagen....

Allies and Morrison studios

When Allies and Morrison designed and build their studio in London, we helped design and develop the interior vertical pivoting shutters.   The manually operated pivoting shutters are an essential element of the building's aesthetic and make it possible to control daylight intake to provide a soft and pleasant light inside the offices.   The pivoting shutters are made of aluminum and because they are painted in different colors on each side, they change the color tones of the offices when they are in use. Furthermore, when the pivoting shutters are closed, they prevent blinding from the neighboring buildings.   Allies and Morrison have received numerous prestigious design awards for the design of their building, including the RIBA Award Building of the Year 2004 and The Royal Fine Art Commission Trust Building of the Year Award Special Award for Offices 2004.   Photo credit: Allies and Morrison and Art Andersen & Copenhagen....
