Glare-free daylight helps green Greenwood Elementary

June 02, 2007 |

Looking to introduce controlled daylight into the 775-student Greenwood Elementary School in Glen Allen, Va., designers at BCWH Architects, Richmond, Va., specified translucent Kalwall panels at every opportunity, including the ends of corridors, open stairwells, the lobby, classroom clerestories, and floor-to-ceiling curtain wall. Kalwall shines brightest in the school's media center (left), where the panels prevent glare from glancing off the surfaces of a retractable projection screen, a television, and computer lab monitors. The lack of glare greatly reduces eyestrain for teachers and students alike, and enhances viewing from all locations around the room. In addition, the lack of direct sunlight prevents UV damage to furnishings, books, and teaching materials.
