The integrated exterior blind systems are used on the building envelope to handle the heat and light excess effects needed on the building’s south facade. These blind systems also allow for passive energy control strategies.

Soffits and glazing balustrades on the exterior surfaces of the building follow the BAUHAUS color triad’s principles.
