  • SIZE: 5400 SQM
  • Software used: Autodesk Revit and Adobe Photoshop

The Building is angled in a way as to maximize wind flow through the turbines as well as minimize heat gain. Though the turbines are the most visible “green” aspect of the design, many other aspects contribute to the sustainability of the design.

Technologies such as:

  • Rainwater harvesting and water recycling help reduce the developments impact on water resources.
  • Roof gardens and gardens reduce surface runoff
  • Selective Low-E glazing reduces heat gain and balances cost.
  • LED lighting for common areas to reduce operating costs and hear gain.
  • Power management systems to inform the tenants of power and water consumption are being considered for the project.

The project is being envisioned as part of a larger development to showcase sustainable technologies and practices that can be used without greatly affecting our lifestyles as a first step to the acceptance of sustainability in the local market.
