Two projects in Denmark show with expanded metal from RMIG how a sunscreen that was technically necessary makes for sophisticated architecture.
Stylish and functional sun screens
1,600m2 of expanded metal have been used to create decorative and versatile sun screens for Learnmark Horsens. The expanded metal panels have been mounted approximately two metres away from the building, creating a small passage between the building itself and the sun screens, making space for the ease of cleaning windows and general maintenance. To achieve a more vibrant facade, two different types of expanded metal panels have been used. This gives an interesting expression which is further enhanced when some of the panels are opened.
