Solar Shading Education Spur®|Zest®
The new $28 million expansion to the Willetton Senior High school is designed by Hassell Architects and built by Cockram Constructions. Arcadia was approached by the Hassell Architects to assist in the design and engineering of the solar shading and sunblade system.
Two key features of the design process were to provide specialist anodise colours (Greens, Yellows and Bronze) as well as providing a concealed cleat system which could still support the vertical sunblade system. Arcadias Zest® range of sunblades offers totally concealed fixings.
Arcadia provide a range of custom anodise colours which include Olivine, Zephyr, Champagne and a Bright yellow which created a stunning look to the building. The vertical aluminium sun blades are designed to provide effective solar control reducing heat loads and glare whilst allowing natural daylight. Such considerations are important and should be given due consideration when designing learning facilities.
Screening to the roof plant decks was designed with Arcadia’s 125mm Elliptical Zest louvre system to remove HVAC from line of sight. Arcadia’s unique continuous system provides clean uninterrupted lines.
