Mermet controls light in the Be Open building
The figurehead of the new office complex in the Paris Rive Gauche development area in the district of Austerlitz, the Be Open building stands out thanks to its highly contemporary aesthetics including walls that glisten due to the undulating form of its sun-shading structures.
On the exterior there is a constant interplay of forms that evolve throughout the day in response to the sun; on the interior, priority is given to transparency and natural light… control of visual and thermal comfort has also been fundamental.
The technical demands and the requirement for perfect integration with the facades could only be met by the Satiné 5500 fabric from Mermet.
866 Solozip® vertical roller blinds from Griesser (1.80m x 1.35m), with excellent wind resistance, were installed on the 4 facades. By preventing the heat from penetrating the building in the summer, the Satiné 5500 fabric protects the work areas and guarantee lower energy consumption.
