Triple-skin Facade of Glass and Wood

SKIN / Arriving at Villa Jalle means never growing weary of surprises . . .

. . . offered by the passage from a full, whitewashed northeast  facade to its southwest counterpart, with glazing along its full height (18 x 3 m) entirely striated by wooden louvers. The glass wall recalls the thickness of the traditional walls with its double-skin consisting of two layers of glass separated by a vacuum. As a third skin, louver sunshades dance from the floor all the way up to the roof tiles, seeming to move forward and back: an optical illusion created by the play of light on the pattern formed by the slant of the wood slats. Made from larch wood on a partially mobile metal frame, the sunshade effectively reinforces the overall design to keep the house cool in summer.
