NATURAL AIR FLOW FEATURE
The KJ Architects team designed and built offices to create a brand new contemporary office with multi-functional spaces, catering for office functionality and alternative events. The building is cleverly designed with access in mind, and is a credit to modern design. With our design goals in mind, we took great care with the architecture, choosing the best materials to create the desired finish and an office we would enjoy for both work and play!
This building was a commercial architecture project, and was designed to include full mobility access. The front wall is constructed of Kalwall, and represents a main feature of the building. It works cleverly to flood the office space with light, while defusing heat and cold, and takes away any glare – making it incredibly easy to see computer screens without reflections. The South wall is glazed and protected by Brise Soleil, to make the most of natural resources and regulate building temperature. Kalwall diffuses light so efficiently that even direct sunlight is converted to even, glare-free illumination. It gives a soft, restful light in work areas free from sharp shadows and contrast. This lighting environment prevents eyestrain, increases efficiency and saves energy.
With a dual height space, the mezzanine level provides space for other activities apart from a working space – such as band nights! The lighting features around the building also provide an alternative atmosphere to the daytime work space, and all windows and doors open to a decking area and water feature, also complete with lighting. The water feature helps keep the building cool without artificial aids such as air conditioning.
This work was completed 10 years ago now, and considering the contemporary look and appeal that the building retains after such a period of time, this project perfectly exemplifies how investing in KJ Architects’ architectural services will future proof investment.
We’ve created a modern and functional office space which is a reflection of the work we do and love.
