More about this product

  • Architects: Valerio Dewalt Train Associates
  • Location: Chicago, IL, United States
  • Design Architect: Valerio Dewalt Train Associates
  • Area: 90000.0 ft2

The University of Chicago Lab School's new arts facility, the Gordon Parks Art Hall, includes art and music labs, rehearsal rooms, an art gallery, performance spaces and a music hall.

Funded in part by a donation from the George Lucas Family Foundation, the high-profile project features large windows that required an optimal daylighting solution.

After some back-and-forth exchange of ideas and on-site meetings, a final design was agreed upon: a custom motorized shade system on tracks. The shades would be operated via a wall switch, and feature Mermet E Screen Charcoal/Gray with a 3% openness factor.

The custom solution was based on Draper’s Motorized FlexShade ®.
