Recent Project - Environmentally friendly building for The Guide Association
For this building we utilised energy saving solutions with environmentally friendly and people safe materials, especially and specifically designed by MG Architects.
The dormitory is orientated east to west to capture the early morning sun, and to avoid facing the cold north. Specially designed projecting eaves prevent the hottest summer sun from entering the building through the windows The large overhangs also provide weather protection to the walling.
The double bank of windows enable the the lower section to be closed off at night whilst retaining the upper ones (higher for security reasons) open for natural ventilation. The slope of the roof will assist with this natural flow across the dormitory. All the finishes are environmentally friendly and are safe and simple to re-apply.
The rainwater pipe is formed from a chain. This creates an interesting feature of a normally mundane part of a building.
