“Keeping dollars local – We have an enormous capacity to use our business as a force for good, not just with programs around the edges, but even more so by directing the dollars that drive the core of our business toward businesses that share our values and help our communities thrive.” – courtesy of SunCommon
So awesome to work with a company that has our same values. “Keep it local.”
Designing with the team at SunCommon was such a blast. Their goal was to have window coverings that would transform, move and diffuse the Sun to work to their advantage throughout the day.
The answer? Light-Louvers.
Light Louver window coverings are the purposeful use of sunlight to meet the illumination requirements of the space. Light Louvers control sunlight distribution, contrast ratios/visual comfort and redirect sunlight penetration onto work surfaces. In other words, magic! This shading system was meant to be in SunCommon’s Waterbury, Vermont’s NetZero building.
What does “NetZero” mean? The building will produce as much energy as it uses, said company co-founder Duane Peterson.
“If we wanted to burn fossil fuels, we’d have to pour them on the ground and light them,” Peterson said. –courtesy of SunCommon
On the lower office windows, we used Hunter Douglas Designer Solar Shades. The fabric selected, reduces the glare bouncing off the cars passing by and parked outside. The overall look is sleek and contemporary.
