While extensive glazing ensures the tenants in 400 George Street have the best possible exposure to daylight and views, this can also create problems if there's too much heat and glare.

Project architect Cox Rayner specified Verosol Ambience roller blinds for the building to enable tenants to control the light on their own floors. KWA Blinds supplied and installed more than 3000 of its blinds to meet a fairly complex brief from the architect.

To add an extra layer of architectural detailing to the exterior appearance of the building, the architect's design specified blinds in different colours. Shades of bronze, sable, grey, taupe, ebony and gunmetal represent the binary code and spell its name, 400 George, around the building.

Because of the alternatives available in the Verosol range, tenants were able to choose whether to have blinds with a motorised or non-motorised operation. Other Verosol Ambience options include blockout fabric, so for areas such as conference and media rooms, which sometimes need to be darkened for presentations, roller blinds in this fabric were installed. These are still in the appropriate colour to match the binary code for that level.
