Official opening of The Bow, Calgary’s tallest tower

Special events have been held in Calgary this week to mark the official opening of The Bow, a 237- metre-high headquarters tower – the city’s tallest building and Canada’s tallest tower outside Toronto. A bold new landmark on the skyline, the project is equally significant in urban, social and environmental terms: the public base of the tower is filled with shops, restaurants and cafes and extends into a generous landscaped plaza, while the office floors are punctuated by three six-storey sky gardens, which encourage natural ventilation and help to significantly reduce energy use.

Marrickville house renovation in Sydney by Danny Broe Architect

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Article source: Danny Broe Architect

The brief: To create an Australian version of an English garden room at the rear of an existing Federation style brick house.

Planning strategy
The challenge of this design was to create a room with lots of glass that was still suited to the hot climate of Australia. We achieved this by reducing the glass in the roof to a reflective glass triangular skylight and the careful placement of external glass in relation to the direction of the sun.
