The Bluepoint Residences are designed to maximize beautiful ocean views while maintaining privacy for its inhabitants. Its sweeping facades are made of a series of vertical louvers which, while providing both vistas and privacy, also reduce heat gain from sunlight, and associated energy consumption, by over 60%.
The louvers are constructed in long, continuous components from a lightweight wood-plastic composite (WPC) that is produced locally and economically. The WPC used is primarily made of waste sawdust from timber mills. WPC is highly resistant to rot, remains stable in high humidity and temperature conditions, and is comparatively lightweight. The louver design harnesses both WPC’s strength and its pliability.
The louver system is easy to manufacture and install and is extremely resilient. Paul Raff Studio can adapt and apply this system to almost any type of building.
