At 500 Broadway, Santa Monica, USA Levolux are providing a movable screening solution in order to provide personalised control over sun & privacy.
The project started in early 2016, when the architects engaged Levolux to help further their design for sliding sunshades on their proposed 500 Broadway residential block. Levolux initially investigated the potential of sliding doors around a circumference, however, with budget restraints and system usability, settled on a lateral system. Levolux also ensured the extensive use of aluminium meant that it met the weight restrictions allowed functionality and ultimate ease of install. The city approved the Levolux design early on as GCs/subcontractors were brought on board.
