Vertical slats in residential building by Blanca Lleó [429]

It is a residential complex of free distribution dwellings, of 40 m2 and 6.8 m façade length.

<p><span lang="EN-GB">As the author, Blanca Lleó, says about the project: "adequate orientation and the operable slats system on the large windows of the facades ensure maximum sunrays in winter and maximum solar protection in summer, which means significant energy savings".</span></p>
<p><span lang="EN-GB">All slats are adjustable and pivot from 0-90 degrees. This limitation of pivoting hinders the views to northwest and prevents from winter evenings sunrays. The manipulation of each slats aggrupation is done manually from each one-space flat. In common spaces these aggrupation have less number of panels. The slats have a steel core and phenolic boards as exterior covering.</span></p>
