443 Queen Street: green walls to let you breathe
Located in Brisbane Australia, 443 Queen Street heralds a new generation of design. It has been designed to allow natural air and light into all common areas. There is no need for mechanical ventilation as the breathable façade works as a natural ventilation system. Breathable walls allows air and vapour pass thorough naturally, preventing any moisture from building up, which may create problems with damp. In breathable walls there is no impermeable layer to keep moisture out, instead they are designed with high permeability. There are also numerous sustainable elements throughout such as rainwater harvesting, integrated shading system, common waste separation system, shared green space amenity.
