Creating shadow

The climate change has impacted summer in Berlin. Heat waves are heating up the office rooms of the Next building from June to August. To counter that we were looking at several concepts of shading possibilities.


After contemplating all realistic alternatives we decided on a passive but effective way. Outside shading in form of textile screens with frontal system are installed at every relevant window in Next. The time plan for all so-called Venetian blinds is made and all Next-tenants can breathe in cool air shortly in their office rooms.


Luckily the summer 2020 is merciful with its temperatures and nobody has melted until now. Release is near and future summers promise a cooler work-climate.
