elenberg fraser clads melbourne's victoria one in louvered green glazing

the structure is not only defined by its soaring height, but also its distinctive finned envelope, designed to give the building aerodynamic qualities which reduces downdrafts towards street level. these vertical wings also work as passive solar shading – reflecting natural light and glare.
