NEW INFOGLOBO HEADQUARTERS

The new headquarters for Infoglobo were designed to reflect the dynamism of the newspapers El Globo and Extra, with a commitment to achieve the highest level of sustainability. This is a unique facade in Brazil, where the large size sliding shutters that incorporate rotating louvre blades stand out as the characterising element of the façade.

The sun protection system is automated so that depending on the incidence of the sun and the program set by the client, the shutters slide and the blades rotate to accommodate, providing an adequate protection as well as the desired image of a changing facade.
