Light and shadow using Altair louvre windows

A wall of Altair louvre windows at Breezway's head office forms geometric patterns on the walls, floors and ceilings.

With almost the entire eastern façade of the Breezway head office made up of a wall of Altair louvre windows, there are two characteristics of the building that most visitors comment on:

  1. How pleasant it is to feel the breeze.
  2. How much natural light streams into our building.

The building's Altair louvre windows have green tinted glass blades to reduce the amount of solar heat entering the building. The sunlight passing through and between the tinted blades forms geometric patterns on the walls and floors. The open clips add additional interesting patterns.

When the sun is low, the sunlight also reflects off the tops of the blades to form patterns on the ceiling.
