The Council House 2 (CH2)
This building, an administrative realty, was commissioned in 2006.
It has been awarded six stars by Australia’s Green Star environmental certification. This is one of many benchmark features.
The structure’s model was designed to use as little energy as possible while still maintaining a premium quality commercial building (Zandieh & Nikkhah 2015).
Design is about enhancing appropriate architectural responses. It is also about a sincere reflection on ideas of unique design relationships that are used in nature.
The blueprint encourages interaction between Mother Nature and Melbourne.
This building is Australia’s first example of infrastructure that is directly inspired by the biological entities and processes found in nature.
Other features include the fact that the air quality of the building’s interior is controlled by fluids and water using unique technical methods.
Temperature differences between day and night affect the weather.
Conical ventilation pipes combine with day lighting tactics and an uneven concrete floor structure. This plays a central part in the building’s cooling and heating system (CH2, 2017,).
The building’s main feature is its drastic reduction in energy consumption.
This building is a leader in maintaining balance with nature’s resources. It combines sophisticated engineering with advanced technology and modern engineering.
This building’s architecture is based on the recognition of the current environment.
As part of society, it is important to promote and maintain a healthy balance between nature and man.
