Exposed to extreme sun Kaynemaile-Armour provides internal solar shading, yet gives inside-out visibility.

 

Wrapping around a series of custom-designed pyramid forms highlighted the material properties of Kaynemaile-Armour— strength, flexibility and rigidity, all in a lightweight package.

Exposed to extreme sun Kaynemaile-Armour provides internal solar shading, yet gives inside-out visibility. Located a close distance from the ocean, the non-corrosive nature of Kaynemaile-Armour means it outperforms other traditional materials.

 

"We have been fascinated to see the façade changing its appearance over the course of a day–transforming from an undulating bronze veil in the morning into gold pyramids when in direct sunlight in the afternoon.”
