Houston Community College

Challenge

The college needed to control the morning and afternoon sun that affected both the front and atrium portions of the building.

 

Solution

CS Fixed Horizontal Sunshades make a dramatic statement and significantly reduce the interior heat and glare at HCC. HOK specified a custom horizontal “ladder type” airfoil sunshade to control the morning and afternoon sun that affects both the front and atrium portions of the building. The exposed mullions attached to the masonry walls are exaggerated to add drama to the sunshade design.
