Project Duration: 1965 - 1968
The Client wanted a workspace which, through its very form, generates a controlled micro-climate, obviating the necessity for air-condition. The brief specified a programme that was incremental - hence the modular units, which are indented into a cruciform so as to bring more daylight to the workspaces. To minimize hear input, the units are sealed along the east; on the west (which enjoys a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape) shade is provided by the large roof overhang -consisting partly of a slatted pergola and partly thin membrane of water which reflects the incident hear of sunlight back into the sky.
