A key feature of this renovated castle is its magnificent glazed dome atrium, which lets daylight flow throughout the building. The dome covers a 500m² area and is 15m tall. Guthrie Douglas were approached to solve the problem of integrating shading systems to protect the atrium from heat and glare, to ensure the space could be used year round. More importantly, the solution needed to be sympathetic to the historic building’s elegant restoration. Our TESS 512 was the natural solution since it can cover up to 100m² with a single mechanism, leaving just slim support cables behind when retracted.
