Gently curving, perforated Nordic Brass solar screens help to define the character of the North Fitzroy Library and Community Hub in Melbourne, Australia. Designed by architects GroupGSA, it enjoys the highest, 6-Star ‘Greenstar’ sustainability rating.
Much of the main facade glazing is shielded by curved, vertical screens of perforated Nordic Brass, each one offset against the next. The pattern formed by the perforations in the brass is derived from the dappled light patterns from the trees in the adjacent park. This theme continues internally with perforated Nordic Brass applied to features such as the reception desk.
