Adhoc protections in each facade [597]

In this house near Madrid the architects did not use solar protection as a minimum skin that wraps the whole volume without considering the specific requirements of each facade, but have designed adequate protections for each orientation and the inner use.

The south facade is solved with a perforated sheet on horizontal sliding panels.On the east and west facades similar panels rotate through a vertical edge so that they can seek the views while protecting from the low sun. This way, the terrace in the southeast corner is completely covered by moving solar protections.The north side has similar panels, but in this case they rotate on its top horizontal edge to form a visor. With this orientation, the visor seems designed for security and privacy rather than solar protection.
