Technical Design for Breeze House submitted!


We have submitted the Technical Design for Breeze House. This is an office and residential building in Kigali, Rwanda. The tender process for contractors will soon begin.
The drawing on the cover shows the top corner of the building as seen from the east - where you need to block direct sunshine. 
On the office floors, expanded metal panels stop every sunbeam while opening up to views and diffuse light to the north and south. 
On the residential level, the rooms themselves adapt their orientation organically to find the same optimal orientation with large picture windows.
(We are working on an update for our website)

Hemos entregado el Proyecto de Ejecución de Breeze House. Se trata de un edificio de oficinas y residencial en Kigali, Ruanda. El proceso de licitación para los contratistas comenzará en breve.
El dibujo de portada muestra a la esquina superior del edificio visto desde el Este - donde hay que bloquear la luz solar directa. 
En las plantas de oficinas, paneles de metal expandido detienen todo rayo de sol, y a la vez se abren a las vistas y luz difusa del norte y el sur. 
En el nivel residencial, las habitaciones mismas adaptan su orientación orgánicamente para encontrar la misma orientación óptima con grandes ventanales.
