At the centre of Rafael Viñoly’s design is a glass atrium incorporating two crystalline light-well structures. This featured unusual glass trapezoids inclined on two planes, making the shading brief challenging, and critical to the success of the building, with design requirements around natural light, sustainability and user comfort. Guthrie Douglas were engaged to provide a complete solution, from concept to installation supervision and development of a maintenance programme. The solution was based on the core technology of the TESS™ 200 series, a robust double-barrel tension system which can deploy 60m2 of fabric with a single motor.
