A panorama of the cityscape is a very appealing feature of the Sky City Convention Centre, which is why nothing should interfere with the view, not even the window furnishings.

Blinds that offer two options of shading, yet remain hidden when not in use, were designed and installed by New Zealand Window Shades.

Two blinds one providing shade from the sun and the other offering total block out are concealed inside a architecturally designed blind recess, says commercial manager Lois Hayson.

"The large expanse of glass creates a dramatic backdrop so we provided shading that enhanced, rather than detracted, from the view."

On brightly lit days, a semi-transparent sun shade can be lowered by remote control. When a dark room is required for presentations, the block-out blind has the same easy mechanical operation.

"These proven fabrics and systems were specified in consultation with Craig Craig Moller Architects to match the interior," Hayson says.
