This office building to house its architects takes its cue from the fact that after about 20 years (XX) most offices are unable to meet the exigencies of the day. To avoid the unnecessary quantities of energy and waste attendant on a conversion, this particular office can be dismantled and its materials recycled. The large glass panes and wood frames of the facade, the timber columns, the timber joists with steel structural sections and the cardboard airconditioning ductwork are all deployed with a view to disassembly. With respect to the glazing, a low-tech climate facade principle obtains: the inner leaf is of canvas.
