The tower will be located 10 kilometers from the center of Colombo, the largest city in Sri Lanka, overlooking the Diyawanna Lake in Kotte. To minimize solar heat gain, the architects have designed the entire building such that no glass surfaces are directly exposed to sunlight.
Air conditioning is reduced to a minimum thanks to the optimal orientation of apartments, which allows for natural ventilation. In addition, the plants will act as sound and heat buffers and provide cleaner air. The vertical garden will be watered using an automated drip irrigation system that saves water and works independently from the occupants. Some of the building’s energy requirements will be met via solar panels installed on the roof and will be used for public lighting, elevators, recycling systems and other utilities.
