An exceptional place to live, work and visit, that’s how Fulham Reach can be described. In 2019, Fulham Reach was declared Best Large Development Winner. This award-winning development is a mixed-use riverside destination, where the architectural solar shading provides a sleekly finished look.
The eight storey building Faraday House in London is clad in hand-finished copper alloy, reflecting warm light into the spaces around it. But uncontrolled and excessive sunlight can seriously disrupt the experience of comfort. For this reason, the architect opted for structural solar shading. The DucoSlide panels ensure a drop in the average indoor temperature of up to 12% to combat overheating.
The architectural sun control DucoSun Ellips 200 mm, supplied by Contrasol, ensure the maximum amount of diffuse daylight.
