A landmark on the corner of Katherine Street and Rivonia Road in Sandton, the three linked office towers of the new Discovery Global Head Office have expansive glass facades and distinctive atriums designed by Boogertman and Partners in collaboration with Pure Consulting.
The Pennsylvania State University HUB-Robeson Atrium is the focal point of Penn State University with approximately 5,400 sq. ft. of skylight.
Ranging from 120 to 132 sq. m., the units’ shopfronts possess both rear and front full height pop out displays. They were constructed to a high specification, with a single-glazed structural-glazed system.
The new Cummins Technology Center will house 2,000 engineers and features a 120,000 square-foot VS1 facade of glass and terracotta. The geometrically complex wall will be the largest faceted wall in the world.
DeSimone worked alongside Zaha Hadid and ODP Architects to design the tower’s kinetic, structural facade, accomplishing a hybrid of high-concept design and superlative innovation.
Systems used in this project are structural silicone unitised glazed system and glazed and spandrel units with inwards opening vent and external perforated aluminium sheet.
