HED作为执行建筑师与Johnson Favaro合作,设计了这个21,000 SF的两层楼图书馆,拥有全景海景。HED设计了下面描述的双立面,以回收热量,减少维护成本。该项目还包括相关的场地改善、坡道、人行道、景观和地下公用设施。

HED worked as executive architect in collaboration with Johnson Favaro on this 21,000 SF, two-story library with panoramic ocean views. HED designed the double façade described below to recover heat gain and reduce maintenance costs. The program also included associated site improvements, access ramps, walkways, landscaping and underground utilities.

几千年来,羊毛因其保暖、耐用和防潮的特性而广受欢迎。 虽然我们将羊毛与温暖联系在一起,但一个鲜为人知的事实是,它的空间–材料中的中空口袋–而不是纤维本身,可以捕捉和保持热量。

Cultivated for millennia, wool remains widely popular for its warmth, durability and moisture-repellant properties. While we associate wool with warmth, it’s a little-known fact that it’s the spaces—the hollow pockets in the material—rather than the fibers themselves that capture and hold heat.

在曼哈顿海滩图书馆的一个开创性的综合设计建造过程中,HED的建筑师、建筑科学家和机械工程师团队利用这一理念创造了一个全球首创的水平主动双皮外墙(ADSF)。

In a groundbreaking, integrated design-build process for Manhattan Beach Library, HED’s team of architects, building scientists and mechanical engineers leveraged this idea to create a global first—a horizontal active double skin façade (ADSF).

设计师最初计划采用单层玻璃雨幕,我们的团队建议将外部改为ADSF,以显著降低能源成本和维护,并保持图书馆的透明度。这种开创性的设计由三层功能层组成–外层玻璃、内层玻璃和两面墙之间的连续两英尺的空气间隙–通过有效地用热毯包围结构,极大地降低了图书馆的能源负荷。

Originally planned by the design architect as a single-glazed rain screen, our team proposed changing the exterior to an ADSF to dramatically reduce energy costs and maintenance and preserve the library’s transparency. Consisting of three functional layers—an outer glazing, an inner glazing, and a continuous two-foot air gap between the two walls—this pioneering design drastically reduces the library’s energy load by effectively surrounding the structure with a thermal blanket.

ADSF在美学和功能上都令人惊叹,它是这个获奖图书馆的开放性、透明度和美感愉悦的关键因素,也是其获得LEED金奖的关键因素。完成的设计兼顾了高技术含量的工程要求和美丽、开放的公民形象的愿望。

Aesthetically stunning as well as functional, the ADSF was a key contributor to this award-winning library’s openness, transparency and aesthetic delight—and to its LEED Gold certification. The completed design reconciles highly technical engineering requirements with aspirations for a beautiful, open civic presence.
