The Sun Shield
Submitted by: PostMeridiem Partners
Designer's Description: The Sun Shield door is a lightweight metal panel used to reflect the intense east morning summer sun from sensitive living spaces. Once the sun has moved overhead to be shielded by fixed shading devices, this special barn door slides open on a track to reveal glass areas of windows and doors. Though the Sun Shield door aesthetically references a component of a common agrarian structure, its uncommon functionality reduces interior glare and air-conditioning requirements in the Barn House.
