International Financial Reporting Standards Foundation

A daylighting solution that changes as fast as the markets

The International Financial Reporting Standards Foundation ensures that company accounts are understandable across the world. They occupy the ground and first floor of 30 Cannon Street London. Completed in 1977, the building was the first to use glass reinforced concrete facade panels that frame bronze-tinted glass. The building was substantially refurbished in 2015. The large amount of window space and ever-changing daylighting needs of the IFRS Foundation allowed Stansons to show their expertise in the Square Mile.

Daylighting for any type of conference or meeting

The fit out contractor briefed Stansons to provide a daylighting and shading solution that could provide both dim-out and black-out options in the conferencing and meeting rooms. The flexibility to adjust light levels, depending on what type of meeting was happening, was paramount.

The Stansons Solution

Stansons proposed a double blind system. This allowed for two blinds to be installed in the same reveal which meant that a dim-out and black-out blind was available at each window. The dim-out blinds reduced solar glare but left comfortable levels of light in the rooms whilst the black-out blinds allowed for projector presentations and international video-conferencing at any time of the day. Both fabrics were in neutral, business-like shades.

A foundation that now has complete control of the sun

The International Financial Reporting Standards Foundation now have a daylighting and shading solution that means that any of their meeting rooms can be put to any purpose - at any time of the day or year. Once again Stansons were proud to be their partners in light and shade.
