Folding Aluminium Screens Are Used For Privacy And Sun Control On This Home

The metal screens, with a perforated pattern wrap around the exterior of this modern house.

Nico van der Meulen Architects has sent us one of their latest projects, a new modern home that includes extensive folding aluminum screens on its exterior.

The metal screens, with a perforated pattern, start on the front facade of the home, while the entryway includes multiple water features, a sculpture, and hidden lighting.

The screens wrap around the house, and on one side, they fold open to allow the sun and wind to pass through, When closed, the metal screens provide privacy and shade.
