sketch detail of balcony ©2008.huatlim

point92 has been modelled on fundamental elements, one of which consist of a balcony shared between many floors of office space. The white cladding is finished in great contrast to the more natural and vegetated external space, carved out of this luminous envelope. As many as 6 floors have a view of this vertical space, in which animated lighting can be introduced and much outdoor activities can take place, a grand break out area, protected from the elements by rainscreen and such like cladding designs. To eliminate the need to bend the floors the planting strategy for this area takes the form of a simple potted tree, or a bench, which can be rotated and re-arranged at will; plants are located to face west.
