Award-winning energy efficient Arts Centre
The $4 million multi-award winning Moonah Arts Centre, designed by Morrison Breytenbach uses a raft of environmental initiatives to create a highly energy efficient building that maximises the use of renewable energy. The building’s passive solar design uses orientation, solar radiation for space heating and high insulation levels through double glazing and wall, roof and slab insulation.
The architects specified Capral’s 425 Series to create crisp, clean aesthetic lines and contain the high-performance double glazing used throughout the centre. The AGS 425 Narrowline framing system was developed specifically for energy efficient double glazing. Modelled on the AGS 400 Narrowline framing system, it integrates seamlessly to allow design flexibility between single and double glazed systems.
It is ideal for commercial or residential projects that require a bold modern look and high levels of structural and thermal performance. In the Moonah Arts project, it was used in 35W Awning Windows, the Genesis Servery Window, 200 Series Hinged Doors and ARTISAN Bi-fold doors.
