This article describes a joint effort by White Arkitekter and Inform Design to tailor-design the envelope of an office building that is articulated across multiple orientations. The primary motivation for this collaboration was our intention to deliver well-performing facades regarding solar protection without requiring high-tech solutions that increase investment and maintenance costs. The challenge was to tailor design facades that are partially exposed and partially shaded from the building volume. The set goals included solar protection, all-year-round daylight utilization, protected views out, minimizing costs for internal shading devices, and retaining light quality.
