Project no.4

Modern Office development

 

The scheme comprises for a 4-storey office blocks unified by a spine of full height glazed atria. Designed for energy efficiency, the office space is primarily naturally ventilated through user operable windows, supplemented by a mixed-mode displacement ventilation system and heat exchanger. Exposed concrete soffits provide passive cooling, avoiding the need for air conditioning.

The main entrance is defined externally by a 4-storey planar glazed wall, affording the building a dramatic presence on this prime waterfront site. The façade reflects both its setting and the corporate brand by the selected use of bronze cladding and extensive areas of solar-shaded glazing. Internally, a sense of movement and transparency is achieved by the use of glazed lift shafts, open staircases and link bridges.
