INNOVATION IN BuILDINg
Building Studio Architects Pty Limited
The lantern will be an iconic commercial building at the entrance to the
Docklands precinct in melbourne, Australia, which has stringent development
controls. The design provided for superior environmental performance while
creating a building with premium office and retail space with enhanced views of
Victoria Harbour. The challenge was to develop the diamond façade system and
prepare documentation for tender and manufacturing.
Building Studio Architects used Bentley Architecture from inception to
completion. Generativecomponents was used to resolve the variable façade
geometries, model the building for client approval, and coordinate with
subconsultants and contractors on installation. Building information modeling
ensured accurate modeling of building components and subsystems, and
enabled subsequent production of full contract documents.

over the years, the town of limbiate in Italy has expanded from a quaint
town square bordered by courtyards to a sprawling urban development with
single-family and multifamily residences. A new residential building was
designed to give shape to the town square by delineating the square and
garden as public space.
The $9.5 million building captures the town’s historic aesthetic with a
foundation that blends with the pavement of the square, balconies that
overlook the garden, and loggias that face the square. caruso mainardi
