Visitors to the Breezway Head Office are often drawn to the unique
characteristics of the building, particularly the pleasant feel of the breeze,
and the amount of natural light streaming inside, thanks to the Altair louvre
windows. Another aspect of the louvre windows that can be observed only in the
morning when the sun is low in the sky, is the light pattern created by the
angled, open blades.
The entire eastern façade of the Breezway Head Office is made up of a
wall of Altair louvre windows. Featuring green tinted glass blades, the windows
reduce the amount of heat entering the building in the form of sunlight. The
sunlight passing through, and between the tinted blades form geometric patterns
on the walls and floors with the open clips creating additional interesting
A favourite light effect is the rainbow effect created on the floor by
the sunlight refracting through the edges of the glass blades.
