Eilert Smith Hotel

We designed the dynamic facade for Eilert Smith Hotel’s rooftop restaurant using vertical folding shutters in collaboration with Trodahl Arkitekter, who led an extensive building restoration.

 

The vertical folding shutters follow the curvature of the rooftop restaurant’s large panoramic window.

 

They are made of brass and stainless steel components that can withstand Stavanger’s high wind loads and saline coastal air. The vertical folding shutters park compacted on one side when they are not in use and in front of the window when there’s a need for solar shading.

 

Each shutter has a punched pattern that provides a play of light and shadows when the sun shines in.
