The award winning ASB North Wharf building, designed in conjunction with leading architects BVN Donavan & Jasmax embodies a number of innovative environmentally sustainable strategies. The atrium serves as the lungs of the building – cross ventilation is achieved by the fresh air of the open windows on the façade which is drawn to the top of the building through a single channel. The channel and reflector light on the roof of the building captures and reflects natural light deep into the building.
Designed from the inside out, the workplace is based upon the concept of ‘neighbourhoods’ with a variety of spaces. These provide original and unique work environments that inspire a sense of identity, community and transparency in line with the aspirations of ASB work. One such unique space is the media silo designed by CPRW Fisher architects and built by Jones & Sandford Joinery where Asona supplied and installed Snaptex curved stretched fabric acoustic panels in vibrant Textila fabrics. For acoustic control a 50mm curved glass fibre absorber was fitted under the fabric.
Asona also supplied Knauf Solopanel G8 perforated acoustic plasterboard ceiling linings to the ground floor retail units to control reverberation.
