Energy efficiency is no longer an after-thought when designing tall buildings, and advances in energy efficiency have revolutionized how buildings are designed. This is no more prevalent than in the design of façades, highlighted by the rise of double-skin enclosures. This cutting-edge design concept can be applied in a variety of ways, resulting in an explosion of novel building forms and a range of new functional opportunities, from the multi-story atria of Shanghai Tower to the natural ventilation in The Gherkin. 1 Bligh Street, the venue for this program, features its own innovative double-skin façade with inlaid automated solar blinds. Therefore, there is no better place to discuss the design possibilities of double-skin enclosures than this CTBUH award-winning tower.

Located at the convergence of Bligh, O’Connell, and Bent Streets, the client’s goals for the new tower were to create a flexible, efficient, and transparent design for the boxed-in site. Across Bent Street lies a public plaza,… Read More
