Masshouse Block D
Following on from our masterplan for Masshouse, we developed proposals for a ten storey office block with ground floor retail. The site responsive design utilises low-energy and renewable technologies.
Banded shading on the south elevation and the vented wall of glazing on the northern facade will carefully manage the solar gain and natural daylight implications of a wide, tall building. These reductions in energy load are further reduced by means of a site-wide Combined Cooling and Heating Powerplant (CHPP). Rooftop photovoltaics will help to power the public realm lighting.
A two storey colannade runs along the court elevation in anticipation of the colonnades of the future Blocks A and B. These will be used as a device to unify the separate buildings around the court.
