What is a Brise Soleil?

What is a Brise Soleil?

Brise soleil (also known as louvres) is an external feature of a building that acts as solar shading and can be manufactured from a range of materials including wood.

This type of façade allows air to flow through to the building which in some cases is necessary and in others is just aesthetic and can visibly conceal unsightly or private buildings.

Timber is a popular choice as it is the most sustainable solution compared to man made, polluting materials. Using wood allows for the timber louvres to be made to specification, giving architects the design freedom for bespoke or custom design. Horizontal, vertical or a patterned design, moving or non moving parts are all an option when designing with wood.

Sun shading can also be created using a brise soleil canopy. This will extend from the building, providing shade to the floor below, often a patio or terrace. An example of this can be seen here.
