The award winning Kadoorie Biological Sciences Building is the first building in Hong Kong to fully exploit the green possibilities of a second skin: an external glazed screen which is 2.5 m away from the external wall. The building is clad in a combination of silver grey ceramic tiles and glass and steel double skin. The north and south facades are clad in ceramic tiles and the windows are protected by sun-shading devices. The building provides teaching and research accommodation bringing together the formerly dispersed departments of Zoology, Botany, Ecology and Biodiversity and the Institute of Molecular Biology into one 10 storey centre for the Biosciences. The double skin 'eco-skeletal' wall feature that acts both as services space for the laboratory floors and an environmental buffer. The modular concepts and kit of parts designed for the flexible workspace fit-out enable the rearrangement of space allocation and layouts at minimum cost as research and teaching programmes change.
