A 30 story high-rise office tower in Sydney, Australia’s central business district, 1 Bligh Street a treasure trove of sustainable innovation and design.Designed by Architectus and Ingenhoven Architects, this environmentally responsible office tower is set to create a benchmark in Australia for sustainable high-rise buildings and provide an enduring presence on the city skyline.

“The dramatic, naturally-ventilated central atrium connects the office workers with nature at the inner depths of the plan, giving a sense of openness for the entire building. The series of communal spaces throughout the building, and especially the fantastic rooftop garden, add greatly to the quality of life for the tenants.”

The design for the Kerr House is structured around a timber spine wall running along the southern boundary, off of which the new home projects outward and opens to the rear with a large cantilevered concrete wing This creates solar protection and also extends the space into the garden, while the remainder of the house is clad in timber battens and glass louvers to maximise natural ventilation.

 

The house was planned according to the principles of passive sustainable design, using natural materials such as timber to create a connection to the surrounding environment. The central atrium and extensive use of glass louvers maximize natural ventilation and large overhangs promote shade to regulate interior temperatures. Expansive upper deck areas maximize spatial flow and integration with the site...
