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.

<p><span lang="EN-GB">The south facade is solved with a perforated sheet on horizontal sliding panels.</span></p><p>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.</p><p>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.</p>
