Hunter Douglas used its engineering and creative expertise to design a unique solution for a £1.6 million prestige building at Goodwood Aero Club. The contemporary Aero Club building, designed by London architect State of the Craft to house the café and flight school at this world-famous aviation site in Chichester, West Sussex, is visually striking.
To complement this ultra-modern, sleek look, the architects commissioned Hunter Douglas to design and manufacture 24 fully automated and motorised external roller blind systems, each measuring 7.5 m2 (80.7 ft2) for the predominantly glass-fronted building. The motorised external roller blinds are protected from high winds with automated wind sensors, while each section has its own remote control for the corresponding group of blinds. Hunter Douglas also supplied a master remote control for the site manager so that a single button can control all the blinds simultaneously.
Hunter Douglas powder-coated the bespoke anchors to complement the external glazing hardware, and the leading specialist manufacturer also created a tailor-made closure to cover the pocket behind the blind headbox, which was powder-coated to match external glazing, thereby creating a clean, seamless finish to the overall installation.
