CODA / Stanisic Associates

The key passive design innovations and practices of CODA [Stanisic Associates] are a brise-soleil in the form of 3m deep sunrooms that shade the living areas to the north and north-east elevations; adjustable environmental screen to the north and east which allow occupants to control their environment to improve personal comfort and reduce energy consumption; a range of tempered private outdoor spaces, such as winter gardens, loggias, sky terraces and sunrooms that eliminate the barrier between inside and outside, and eliminate the need for air conditioning and artificial heating; open gallery circulation and lobbies to apartments, extending around the communal courtyard; slender building form (enclosed space) of only 10 metre width; 100% naturally ventilated apartments with voids and sky terraces at upper levels which act as pathways for natural air and 100% two storey, cross-over plans with voids and volume for air movement — via ArchDaily
