The triangular office floors are clad in a double skin: the floors were first wrapped in a glass facade [a great deal of which consists of operable windows], which is then masked by the horizontal wood slat paneling seen in the photographs. Workers can step out on to a grating system and push/pull these panels into their desired positions, providing control over the level of daylighting in their specific work space.
This ‘double skin’ provides enough natural ventilation that the building rarely [maybe never] needs air conditioning [remember, it’s in Guadalajara]. Natural ventilation [and lighting] is also utilize within the open central ‘atrium’ space, thanks to those large three storey porches/terraces described earlier in the article. This effectively slices the depth of the building in half, providing this natural lighting and ventilation of both sides of each of the three office triangles., thus providing cross-ventilation and probably a nice draft due to the stack effect in the central opening atrium. via ::myninjaplease
