Taking its place among Laminam’s most prestigious creations is the ventilated façade of the 10,000 m² Fluxmans Building with design by Paragon Architects and hosting distinguished commercial spaces in the Rosebank suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa. Given the complexities of the environment, arising from the height (1750 metres) of the plateau on which Johannesburg stands together with the subtropical climate featuring temperatures from 25 degrees on average in the summer to the 4-degree minimums of winter, the façade’s mitigation of radiation and heat loads represents a strategic element for ensuring comfort and energy efficiency.
