South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) – Adelaide SA

Project Location: Adelaide SA
Project Sector: Healthcare
Client: SAHMRI & The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure
Architect: Woods Bagot SA
Distributor: DAAC Holdings Pty Ltd
System/s Details: Motorised Multilink Blind System 1.09 complete with Mermet M-Screen. The system utilised the Somfy LT50 motors with various degree of lift power depending on number of multilinks. The majority of the project involved linking blinds in very large spans.
Project Solutions: The building’s sculptural form, designed by Woods Bagot in collaboration with Aurecon was inspired by the skin of a pine cone with its unique triangulated grid façade. The transparent façade showcases two internal atriums and, like a living organism, responds to the position of the sun. With 6000+ glass panels over a 25,000m2 building, Vertilux blinds were fitted not to the façade, as is most often the case, but on the internal glazing that weaves its way around the internal space of the building.
