Level 9, The Walbrook Building

When the top floor of this iconic Foster + Partners building in the city was let, Decor Systems were approached by the fit-out contractor to devise a suitable shading system.  The challenge involved installing blinds on to trapezium shaped faceted curtain walling which was angled in two planes.  Using laser surveying techniques, we produced over 200 custom made units of our decor 450 pleated blind system.  

This was a tensioned system, with motorised operation in meeting rooms and manual operation in the open plan areas.  The blinds were mounted on profiles which were powdercoated to blend in with the window mullions for a low-profile minimalist look.

A translucent fabric was chosen, to gently attenuate daylight without completely blocking it out.
