Tower of Wood, Sydney, Australia, The EY Centre by fjmt architects

 

We envisaged a different type of city tower; warm, human and responsive, to create a healthy and sustainable workplace.

Embracing natural materials, it appears in the city as a tower made of timber rising out from the greyness of its neighbours.

This is achieved through a facade made from multiple layers. The outer layer is a single sheet of low iron clear glass, behind which is a layer of automated louvres of natural timber, located within a sealed, air-pressured cavity that is clean and dust free, and finally the inner layer is a double glazed high performance insulating unit.
