Daylighting

The pleasure and benefit of natural daylighting is a measurable and well-documented feature of successful living and working environments. From the beginning phases of the design process, the Liquid Wall contributes the precision and malleability of its production technology to the realization of the most ambitious architectural concepts for interior daylighting.

The Liquid Wall translates three-dimensional fa├žade elements, such as light shelves and shading devices, into integrated, custom-profiled, high-performance features. These elements, which greatly enhance natural daylighting while reducing solar heat gain, are cast of-a-piece with the curtain wall framing, reducing the costs and risks of on-site assembly procedures.

Optimized through daylight and shadow analyses, daylighting devices are drawn and fabricated precisely according to function. Their efficacy reduces energy consumption by artificial lighting and its associated heating and cooling loads.
