Norquest College

Project Description
Edmonton, AB, Canada

Norquest College's Singhmar Centre for Learning features a full height atrium that spans all four floors of the building.  Bottom up roller shades, in conjunction with a specialized roof design, provide soft natural daylight to the interior classrooms and student commons area below.  Interior venetian blinds line the exterior facade to provide natural daylight and solar heat gain control while blocking uncomfortable glare.  The shading control integrates with the building management system to keep the building energy efficient and cool.
