Project Details:

A passive downdraught cooling system has been utilised to allow the building to cope with these extremes. The use of passive downdraught cooling is believed to be the first of its kind anywhere.

A large lightwell in the centre of the building allows daylight to penetrate deep into the building and is also used to transfer air into and through the building. Exhaust stacks located around the perimeter pull air through and out of the building.
