Houston Community College
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.
