Project Details

System: Skylights / Roofs (SolaGlide) Size: 1 Roof 7.85S X 5.35W 4 Roofs 2.2S X 4.1W Glazing: 16 mm Solar Control Grey Multi Wall PC

The hit TV Show The Block, in the series the Glasshouse, featured a total of 5 Libart SolaGlide Retractable Roofs.

Four smaller opening roofs protect the retail shops including The Block Café in showery weather and from extreme sun in the summer.

The larger roof in the atrium area, in the foyer to the apartments, features a large sliding skylight with a span of 8 metres by 5 metres. In the open position light spills spectacularly into the atrium and garden area. The plants underneath the Libart roof thrive.

A classic example of Motion in Architecture at The Block with the catch cry “Let there be Light”!
