EDO BUILDING IN SYDNEY by STANISIC ASSOCIATES


Building designed by Stanisic Associates

From Architects:
As well as being a beautifully framed space, the gallery performs an essential environmental function. Each apartment has glass louvre vents above its entry door, secured behind aluminum grilles. In summer the gallery acts as a heat sink of cool air, inducing cross flow ventilation through the apartments. Residents get airflow through the apartments without the need for air-conditioning or a fan. The cross-flow ventilation through the apartments is induced by the lower ambient temperature of gallery, which is 15 degrees cooler than the western side of the building.

The gallery is a tempered space, a veranda between the inside and the outside. The gallery is also a social area, allowing people to mix as they come to and from their apartments and the owners’ corporation uses the space for its meetings.

The upper level apartments, which are a mix of two and three bedroom units, don’t directly access the gallery. Instead, they are accessed through a single, central cross-over corridor lined with veined, brown marble panels and slotted ceiling panels painted in a metallic finish to reflect light.
