Natural Daylight

Contemporary technology has provided high-performance glass that is very transparent in the visible spectrum, while excluding or re- radiating harmful wavelengths. Geometric modelling of buildings in response to solar geometry has enabled controlled solar exclusion or harvest when unwanted, while allow ingress of sunshine when needed for warming. 1 Bligh Street uses a clever double skin external glazing envelope, with a sophisticated building management system, together with a highly transparent inner atrium to significantly increase the use of natural daylight deep into the office workplaces.
