Reclaiming Giant Air Pipes: The T. Bailey Offices

Developed by Tom Kundig at the Seattle Office Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects, the T. Bailey Offices were designed to wholly incorporate the client’s product into its office space; and that product is a gigantic pipe used in wind turbine towers.  In fact, several were used through the 11,700 square foot space, where visitors walk in through the building and immediately walk through to the main offices through a massive 14-foot pipe and up into another 22-foot diameter pipe.  Aside from the wild aesthetic, the pipes still serve a lot of their intended purposes, pulling warm air from the office space up through the stairway pipe and out of the building.  Between its natural cooling and solar-powered design, this creative design really goes out of its way to keep the theme as green as possible. – via
