A naturally ventilated large education building.

Project Information

A naturally ventilated large education building, where the main challenge lay in the need to design a facade to mitigate against noise intrusion from future development plans of a new gyratory road system in close proximity of the building. In addition, two large, interlinked atria required particular attention to ensure the success of these spaces.
