148W, Cladding matching louvers, Horiso, Sydney, AU


Not to offend fans of Tolkien, but for this particular message let's rephrase "There and back again" to "From here to down under".

Sunshield has partnered with Horiso as the exclusive distributor of Sunshield for Australia and New Zealand. As this project proves, Horiso doesn't run away from a challenge; they approach it with an open mind.

The developer of a new construction project in the south of Sydney is charmed by Sunshield's louver systems. In this case he preferred wooden slats. In fact, he preferred to have blades made of the same wood as the wooden cladding on the first floor.

The slats of the louver systems not only had to match the colour of the façade cladding, but also in width - so that when closed, they would merge almost seamlessly with the façade cladding.

No problem, Horiso responded! And now we have a great looking duplex of two adjacent houses, with louver systems that fit seamlessly with the wooden cladding.

The residents of house no. 1 preferred motorized operation, controlled by a remote device. While the residents of house no. 2 decided to go one step further, they opted for a home automation system controlled via a C-Bus home control system.
