BMW Head Office, Midrand, Johannesburg
Rene Turk and Associates, 460m², glass panels on a Carrier System Type 5. Automated louvres with sun tracking system, 2 levels of curved mullions, with blades tapering at the ends. RVI designed, supplied and installed the automated glass louver on the internal façade of this circular building. The glass louver, which sits proud of the glass façade moves with the sun, maximizing natural light in the building and minimizing solar heat gain. This was the first project of its kind which RVI has done as well as the first of its kind in South Africa.
