300F Contrafin / 100c Modular Blade
Online Architects were appointed by Calthorpe Estates to substantially remodel this existing 1960s office building into new high quality sustainable and flexible office accommodation, plus retail space at ground floor. The building is designed in a simple modernist style featuring ribbon glazing and crisp white render, respecting the 1960s origins of the building and complementing the historic Georgian buildings of the Edgbaston Conservation Area.
The rear South Elevation features solar shading designed and installed by Contrasol to help create a barrier with the walkway system, and consists of 450mm Aerofoil Fins stacked horizontally with drop rods. Contrasol have also installed their 200mm Aerowing system to high level windows, and also formed louvre screens at various ground levels utilising their 50 & 75mm Z louvre system.
