Additionally, every apartment includes 2 bedrooms which take place at the west and north sides. The roof plan hosts a sitting/dining area, lounge space and barbecue utilities. A pergola is designed to be made from solar panels placed on steel structure, which will be providing sunshade when resting underneath. At the same time solar power gain will contribute to the building’s sustainability. The main feature of the building is the perimetrical continuous vegetation pots which surround each floor and allow the potential of growing vegetation. Accompanied by vertical wire ropes around them, will allow plants to grow and expand on them, creating soon a green skin for the building. This green facade combined with proper ventilation will matter significantly to the natural cooling of the building in warm days.
