When KANT arkitekter was tasked with designing the expansion and refurbishment of Metropol University College, they chose to clad a substantial part of the new building in perforated corten steel.
We assisted KANT arkitekter with developing the 108 vertical folding shutters that are placed over the windows in the building to provide dynamic solar shading.
The motorized folding shutters are made of the same type of corten steel and have the same perforations as the fixed part of the cladding. When the folding shutters are closed, they seamlessly integrate with the rest of the facade.
