University of Sydney Business School

with Woods Bagot

As part of the University of Sydney’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the Abercrombie Business School expects to achieve an annual carbon footprint 40-49% better than benchmarks by maximising the potential for natural ventilation and fully day-lit learning spaces.

A diverse range of thermal environments suited to different program requirements ensures that a large portion of this building can be passively conditioned. This is achieved using a combination of earth ducts, displacement ventilation, and thermal mass strategies. Additionally, Atelier Ten optimized the shading design profile to control solar gains. Guiding the design towards a 5 Star Green Star rating, Atelier Ten informed project strategies for water conservation and reuse, renewable energy, and material resources.
