The New Ways Architects Are Using Terracotta Baguette/Louver
Terracotta, as an ancient natural building material once suited to adorn the Babylonians’ palaces and temples, is regaining favor for modern design with different installation and application ways. While the terracotta baguette is the buzzworthy customizable and durable sunshade option for many, we would like to present it as an special decorative element for facade system.
The below project is a high-end residential building in City Walk , Dubai which used 350*150mm terracotta louvers with different colors, installed facing different directions to arrange the well-proportioned double curtain wall. This is a true marriage of form and function where these louvers aid in reduction of glare and help to shield occupants from the sun and heat outside. Terracotta Baguette/louver offers virtually endless opportunities to create custom facades.
