This is one green building you cannot miss! The Pixel’s costume of jagged, candy-colored panels conceals a high-performance building with the world’s highest LEED score to date. This eye catching four-floor, 12,300-square-foot office building is located just north of Melbourne’s dense central business district was designed by Dylan Brady of Melbourne’s Studio 505.
“We’re very excited that it was voted among the top ten ugliest buildings in the world, because we’re brash down here in Australia and we know how hard it is to get everyone’s attention,” said Brady about the building’s dramatic presence.
The Sustainable Pixel building has been certified with a perfect 6 Star Green Star Design rating, a 6 Star Green Star As Built rating, and a LEED 2009 for New Construction Platinum rating scoring 105 out of 110. A BREEAM rating is in the works. Once attained, it will be the first building in the world to achieve the highest ratings from the three leading rating tools. “If sustainability is spirituality, rating tools are religions,” says Brady. “The reason for a building like Pixel to score so high with rating systems is to drag the 75-percent of the building market that doesn’t care into a better world.”
