Sustainable office architecture
International House, Sydney (AU)
In Barangaroo, an urban district located to the west of the city centre of Sydney, the International House – a refreshing example of sustainable office architecture – now has been completed. An impressive 2,000 m3 of cross-laminated timber and 950 m3 of glued laminated timber were used in the seven-floor building. The selected materials not only have a positive effect on the atmosphere inside the building and the environmental record – a lot less noise and dust were also created compared to other building sites during the almost twelve months of construction.
