Japanese roof tile-style zinc phosphate coated louvres
The louvres vary in design
At night, the louver facade looks different with the light pouring through
The building’s louvre panels are fabricated from 2.3mm thick zinc phosphate coated and bent steel. The building design is inspired by the Edo period culture, such as the Japanese style roof-tile inspired louvres and the Edo woodworking inspired vertical louvres. The zinc phosphate coated panels create a classic ambiance that blends with the surrounding cityscape.
The top half of the louvres are 700mm (W) by 3324mm (H) panels that are 195mm (depth). The lower half of the louvres are composed of louvres that are 773mm (W) by 3324mm (H) and 175mm (depth).
