    This paper introduces a new all-air air-conditioning that improves performances of conventional Variable Air Volume (VAY) systems for office buildings in respect of health and comfort (air quality), productivity (personal environmental control), changeability (flexibility and adaptability), manageability (operation and maintenance) and ustainability (energy consumption).
    In particular this Twin Duct System improves indoor air quality under short term and long term time-variable spatial performance requirements as they exist in modern offices. Moreover it allows direct occupant control of thermal comfort and air quality. The design philosophy of this award-winning innovation is discussed together with its testing in a factory laboratory and current experiences with a major project application in Australia. Field data are currenty being gathered and research is ontinuing on the application of the Twin Duct principles in the underfloor in combination with a newly developed desk displacement ventilation system.
