Light-Filled Gateway Unveiled for Sydney University of Technology
Daylighting is naturally the most prominent feature of the structure — sunlight filters throughout the interior, making the space feel warm and welcoming. The glass is sealed in order to minimize noise and pollution, and a frit pattern is applied to the glass above the first level and the awnings to reduce solar heat gain. Meanwhile the roof is covered in a lacy pattern of green spaces and atriums that also serve as light wells and ventilation channels. These features cover about 80% of the roof and provide excellent insulation while offering an attractive view of the surrounding tall buildings.
