Light and Shadow when using Breezway Louver Windows
With almost the entire eastern façade of the Breezway Head Office (in Australia) made up of a wall of Breezway Altair Louver Windows there are two characteristics of our building that most visitors comment on….1) How pleasant it is to feel the breeze and 2) How much natural light streams into our building.

No, I don’t work in a small home office, the Breezway head office here in the suburb of Coorparoo has a floor area of 660m2 spread over 3 floors.read more
