Linda Bennett


Hello, My name is Linda Bennett, I recently graduated from the University of Technology, Sydney, Australia - B. Arts Architecture + M. Architecture. I graduated from UTS with a 90%+ average and achieved the highest aggregated marks across all areas of study, including history, theory, practice, construction and design. I was awarded the Outstanding Student of the Year Prize in 2011 and I was also nominated by UTS for the 2011 Student Architects Medallion which is the most significant award a student can obtain in NSW. While studying at UTS I focused primarily on establishing my own agenda which at all times met and exceeded the subject outline. I am concerned with addressing the unique issues that exist in the context of each subject and/or project. As such my design and elective projects focused on a wide spectrum of considerations. This allowed me to continually research and develop a broad knowledge about architecture, the city, and it’s user. I believe it is important to mentor, listen, teach and actively participate in the communication which surrounds architecture. While at UTS I founded archi-ninja.com which gave me an online forum for ideas. The identity of archi-ninja has allowed me to write for Architecture Australia, Architectural Review and to participate at conferences including the National Architecture Conference, 2010. In 2010 I was nominated by UTS to attend a study tour of Los Angeles, allowing me to participate in symposiums with CAL Poly and CAL Tech university students, attending lectures, guided tours and interviewing Frank Gehry. In 2006 I was employed by Architectus, Sydney. While at Architectus (in collaboration with Ingenhoven Architects,

About Me

Germany) I worked on 1 Bligh Street, Sydney (www.1bligh. com.au). I worked on the project during all stages of development, from Competition to Practical Completion. I also managed my own multi-million dollar commercial projects, 54 Miller Street, Windeyer Chambers and St Martins Tower. I have extensive experience in the commercial industry and a good understanding of the Sydney commercial market. At Architectus I was exposed to all processes relating to design, administration and management. I am capable of managing large internal and external teams. I am a proficient Revit user and was in part responsible for establishing the Revit modelling standards across the internal and external team for projects including 1 Bligh Street, 54 Miller Street and Windeyer Chambers. I am capable of working in high pressure environments and I enjoy working individually and in a team . I build strong professional relationships and get along very well with my peers. I am a creative and positive individual and enjoy being involved on the elements of design which are unconventional. I am driven by the desire to be successful, to learn and to become a better individual. I am inspired by creative and motivated people who make a difference to the perception and practice of architecture. I also have many mentors and inspirations which expand beyond the industry. The following documents my professional, academic and personal projects and experience. You can contact me via +61 431 387 839 or linda@archininja.com.

1 Bligh Street - Professional

1 Bligh Street, Sydney: (December 2006 - July 2011) Team Member Architects: Architectus, Sydney and Ingenhoven Architects, Germany. Client: DEXUS Property Group/DEXUS Wholesale Property Fund/Cbus Property . Value: $270m. Floor Area: 42, 000m2 Status: Completed, July 2011. See the Professional Project Summary on pages 03-04 of Curriculum Vitae for my specific roles and responsibilities. Winner of the DEXUS/City of Sydney design competition Architectus, in association with Ingenhoven Architects (Germany), have designed and constructed a highly sustainable office tower that has achieved a 6 Star Green Star Office Design V2 Certified Rating from the Green Building Council of Australia. Extending the ideas proposed in the Stage 1 DA, the proposal for 1 Bligh Street was developed with three critical considerations: the View, the Public Space, and the Work Environment. The View: The corner of Bligh and Bent Street strongly marks the main address for the building. The elliptical form aligns with the grid to the north and is oriented to the harbour, maximising views and creating premium office space and a quality work environment. The Public Space: The reduced building footprint creates a significant new public space for Sydney that allows deep soil landscaping and extends Farrer Place. Broad curving steps rise to the sheltered wintergarden and provide an ideal place to sit in the sun and appreciate the full expanse of Farrer Place and the heritage buildings of the Education and Lands Department. The Work Environment: The Work Environment is designed around the principles of ESD, flexibility, efficiency, communication and transparency. The sustainability strategies were designed to achieve a 6 Star Green Star Certified Rating and a 5 Star NABERS Energy Rating. A fully shaded double skin facade provides excellent Indoor Environment Quality (IEO). The structure delivers consistent large floor plates of up to 1600m2 and achieves 92% efficiency Net Lettable Area to Floor Space Area. 40% of all office space is within 4.5m of the facade. The building achieves a 1000m2 contiguous column-free space creating high potential for office layout flexibility. The elliptical plan is 12% more efficient than a rectangular building in facade to floor area and allows excellent natural light penetration. The 120 metre high central atrium makes dynamic views accessible to all.

The east and west facades will require the blind to be tilted down (up to 70°) in the early morning and late afternoon to prevent lower angle sun from infiltrating. Lower levels experience greater shading protection from surrounding buildings as can be seen by the greater extent of yellow shading at Level 14 compared to Level 1. The majority of the building will experience an open/retracted blind position or horizontal blind position on this day.

Level 14 North

X-N

Summer Solstice Shading Schedule (Analytical Drawing)

Low angle winter sun is blocked in the early morning by surrounding buildings but requires blinds to be almost closed for the northern, north east and north-west orientations during the late afternoon. A tilt angle will need to be applied during most hours of the day.

Commercial Tower Proposal - Academic

Commercial Tower Proposal: (4th Year Design - July November 2009) 11510 Architectural Design: Environmental Performance: University of Technology, Sydney The following project was completed over 12 weeks. The brief required students to propose a commercial building situated between Martin Place and Chifley Plaza, Sydney. The project extended the requirements of the brief to respond to the larger issues of Sydney. This included Sydney’s lack of fine grain, generic and loose planning controls, minimal sunlight to public spaces, strong wind tunnels, failed transportation networks, lack of livability, public culture and creativity. The oval shaped building is situated as an object within the square, which is lifted off the ground to visually connect Martin Place and Chifley Plaza. The ground floor is developed as an active civic square with new retail and public programs. The surrounding roads are re-designed to provide pedestrian amenity. The oval shape also responds to issues of wind tunnelling and is 8% more efficient than a rectangular building. The building is situated at the edge of Martin Place to respond to the commercial nature of the precinct, this allows more than 50% of the site and Chifley Plaza to have full access to winter sunlight. The core is separated from the building to shade the western facade, this also allows the floor plate uninterrupted views towards the harbour and other key destinations. Naturally ventilated atriums respond to the direction of local wind conditions. These atriums have direct visual connections to the harbour, Chifley Plaza and Martin Place. The floor plate is 100% continuous; can easily be divided into multiple tenancies, and all fire egress requirements are met. The shape and orientation of the building provides 96% of the floor plate with useful light penetration of 250 minimum lux. The building has an overall efficiency of 83% NLA/ GFA, and an overall efficiency of 93% NLA/FSA. This was achieved through the exclusion of naturally ventilated floor space from FSA calculations when enclosed by a balcony. Structurally the building is a diagrid solution (800mm dia) which removes most of the required columns from the floor plate. It is typically 20% more efficient than a traditional construction. The building design was tested in design builder to calculate a 5 Star operational NABERS rating, it also achieves a 6 Star Green Star and premium grade commercial rating. Environmental considerations include orientation, power generation, envelope optimisation, water collection and building flexibility. Perspective from ground level

Ground Floor Plan The ground level functions as an active civic square, it is both formal and temporal. The outcome of opening up the site, by removing built mass is that the adjacent buildings have more prominent street frontages, this increases their property value and provides an opportunity for them to respond by activating their own frontages. Various Public activities are placed on Ground floor including Channel 7 studios, temporary art/gallery spaces, cafes and restaurants, retail and commercial functions. In perspective the site reads coherently but with a diverse cross section of activities along the site. Fine Grain is encouraged at ground level which is open to the public, protected from downdrafts and exposed to winter sun. The ground floor functions as a social hub with a focus on public transport; the exit from the underground train station has direct relationship to the buildings core. The site also seeks to be flexible, capable of supporting various activities and responding to temporal and future demand. The ground floor has a relationship to the activates of the tower, active balcony edges allow longer views into the building creating a connection between those at ground plane & those above.

Deep Sunlight Penetration

The building is supported by the fundamental principles of ESD. The building orientation & location of the core seeks to maximise both sunlight penetration & provides shading to the Western facade. 20% of the volume is naturally ventilated. The structural system is more efficient than traditional construction and the shape of the building is 8% more efficient than a rectangle.

Trigeneration or trigen is the simultaneous production of mechanical power (often converted to electricity), heat and cooling from a single heat source such as fuel or solar energy. As with cogeneration, the "waste heat" which is produced as a by product that results from power generation is harnessed & used to supply 100% of the buildings electrical and power requirements.

The facade is designed to be both efficient, elegant and sustainable. The shape of the building reduces the volume to surface are ratio, while fixed shading is incorporated into the a 800mm clear ventilated cavity. A number of calculations were used to test the facade shading effectiveness. The shading is fixed and integrated into the design concept in order to minimise cost.

PCA Premium Grade Summary: Environmental: Environmental requirements are exceeded to achieve a 6 Star Green Star and 5 Star Nabers rating. Configuration: Configuration requirements are exceeded. The building is larger than 30, 000 sqm with all floor plates larger than 1, 200 sqm, tenant service zone is more than 150mm and 5% of the floor plate is capable of High loading. Mechanical: The mechanical selection with floor by floor fresh air is zoned and supplied to suit. Tenant Risers: General Exhaust, kitchen exhaust, supplementary toilet exhaust and supplementary outside air provided as per requirements, refer to core plan.

The project recognises the importance of water conservation. High Efficiency fixtures, dual flush toilets, waterless urinals are install- ed. 100% of Large scale rainwater collection is to be used for flushing toilets, hosedown areas and irrigation.

The floor plate is organised around social sustainability and workplace quality. The floor plate offers flexibility which is a key concept in Environmental design. In any number of configurations the building functions the same.

On site Water collection /retention will reduce flow to sewer rates by approx 90%. Details are incorporated into paving for seamless collection.

TRANSFER LEVEL

Gravity Load Transfers

Structural Section Structural Concept The building incorporales a structural diagrid which reinforces the geometry. Most of the required columns are moved to the exterior of the floor plate to optimise NLA and internal quality of space. The Internal column loads are transferred to the diagrid at the mid rise and low rise plant levels to all the Ground floor to be liberated, this opens up the ground plane significantly and provides a more elegant solution. The structural diagrid is 20% more efficient than atypical construction. The structure and facade are highly integrated visually, while environmentally the structure allows a large cavity for natural ventilation and shading. The Core and Floor plates are expressed as separate objects, the lightness of the structure allows the floor plates to appear as light and elegant as possible. The up tuned edge beam allow high floor to ceiling heights which maximise useful daylight penetration and external views. Structure is vital to achieving the buildings concept, efficiency and effectiveness.
