Now that’s one hell of a roof! This is one of many glazed roof lights with specially designed noise reduction panels, in a repetitive triangular modular design, Dortech delivered at Pleckgate High School. The schools site underneath a flight path, hence the special panel design.

Our @hok_sf Central + Wolfe Campus for Apple features a sweeping facade with floor-to-ceiling glass that unites three office wings to form a single, clover-shaped facility.☘️
Through extensive parametric modeling studies, our team was able to design a glass curtain wall facade that appears to be curvilinear but is actually faceted, incorporating only a few different sizes of straight glass panels.📐
In place of a separate solar shading system, the design extends the concrete floor slabs as protruding fins that act as built-in sunshades, protecting the glass walls from direct solar heat gain and glare.☂️
A multilayered light shelf was also applied to the facade to deliver natural light deep within the floorplate.🌞 📸: @timgriffithphoto .
