Steeg Banham – Banham Architects
“We prefer ou r work be timeless rather
than cater to different trends, but it’s
inevitable that advances in technology are
changing the way we build,” Steeg says.
“ We’ve been looking at different ways
that exterior glass can be shielded from
the sun, and laser-cut metal is one trend
that’s being featured more.
“The one40william building in
Perth’s CBD is a good example of using
metal screens with laser-cut patterns that
shield the glass from the western sun.”

“I love the multiple applications and
different functions screens like this can
provide. Not only do they shield exterior
glass from direct sun light, they also provide
privacy. One of the ways they do this is
by transparency, depending on the
lighting and where the light is comi ng
from. People can look in when the sun is
shining, but when the light changes, only
people inside can see out.

“Not only do perforated screens
shield exterior glass from direct
sunlight, they also provide privacy.”
