Glas-STAX Frameless systems used as a functional element in innovative Green Star building atrium.

In 2008 this heritage listed sandstone building, constructed in 1916, underwent a much needed refurbishment to ensure it’s on-going commercial viability. The owners wanted to convert the spaces to A grade equivalent office space and for it to be 6 Star Green Star rated. Small and dark spaces were to be transformed into large, light filled environments. Key elements to achieving this were

  • Create voids to encourage natural light
  • Create a flexible contemporary work environment
  • Improve indoor air quality
  • Ensure energy efficiency in services, including lighting and power consumption

Taking these into account the key design element was the creation of a full height central atrium to deliver light and air flow to the center of the building.

Lotus Glas-STAX Frameless systems were used to create a beautiful operable glass facade that formed part of the light transfer and clean air cycle strategy. This was achieved by selectively opening the facade via the Glas-STAX system, and allowing rising hot air to be flushed from the building using natural thermal currents.

Lotus are delighted to showcase the Glas-STAX Frameless product in this innovative application which required them be be a key part of the functional aspect of the atrium, as well as form an elegant definition of the atrium its self.
