The award winning ASB North Wharf building, designed in collaboration with leading architects BVN Donavan & Jasmax.
Designed from the inside out, the workplace is based upon the concept of ‘neighbourhoods’ with a variety of spaces and embodies a number of innovative environmentally sustainable strategies such as cross ventilation achieved by the open windows on the façade which draws air through to the top of the building via a single channel. The channel and reflector light on the roof of the building captures and reflects natural light back into the building.
In keeping with this sustainable ethos Jasmax asked Asona to supply Knauf-Danoline's Solopanel G8 ceiling lining which has in-built Cleaneo air purification technology for the ground floor ceilings of the retail area including the ceilings of the ASB Wynyard Branch.
Cleaneo technology is derived from a natural volcanic rock called Zeolite. Knauf Danoline uses a synthetic concentrated version called Zeoflair. It is this particular property that actively reduces the concentration of harmful pollutants in the air. When gypsum board containing Zeoflair is perforated, it purifies air as it streams through the perforations, removing unpleasant pollutants and leaving the air cleaner.
The continuous regular G8 perforated pattern combined with the unique FF edges of the panels, which once plastered over, creates a seamless monolithic aesthetic.
