The Walbrook Facade

The Walbrook Facade

Could be described as ‘facade candy’ these images of the Walbrook building facade in London are enough to convince anyone of the powers of FRP.

From the Walbrook: “A veil of silver colored horizontal shading elements (brise soleil) extends from roof level down to the lower levels of the building. It increases in density on the upper stories, where the office space is more exposed to sunlight.

The shading reduces the amount of cooling required to the offi ce space.
These brise soleil elements are manufactured from Fiber Reinforced Polymer with a high
performance and high gloss paint finish. All of the elements are easily de-mounted for
maintenance repair.”
