Triangles, 148W, Lauwers Architects, Reusel, NL
In the rural Reusel, located halfway Eindhoven (NL) and Turnhout (B), Architects Lauwers Ontwerp commissioned Sunshield to fit a country house with two sun blinds.
Both louver systems are triangular in shape. The left one has an area of 8 m2, the right one measures almost 15 m2. The awnings each have their own motor and are operated with a remote control.
The choice fell on the 148-W louver of western red cedar wood. A blade with a width of 148 mm. With wood you have the choice between treating or not treating. If you treat wood, you have to repeat this every 2-3 years.
If you choose for untreated wood, the wood will age under the influence of sunlight and weather influences. For this house, untreated wood has been chosen, actually already on the drawing board. And it works out very well.
The aluminium parts are coated in RAL 7021, black gray anthracite. The plastic parts are finished in black.
