More about this product

BŌK Modern designed diverse sunshade systems with Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects that elevated a student dormitory at California College of the Arts. Not only do the sunshades have a striking visual appeal, but contribute to the overall solar optimization of the entire building: enabling this site to receive a Platinum level rating under the GreenPoints rating system.

This product application consisted of a typical horizontal and vertical sunshade installation through quick, floor-to-floor sunshades. Through the flexibility of colors and patterns, as well as customization, BŌK’s panels proved to be design-forward in collaboration with their partner’s ideas and longstanding relationship. The modern, visual starkness compliments the bright spectrum of building colors, resulting in playful warmth, branding, and urban identity.

Product System Used

  • Sunshades
