The Helios Rehab Sanctuary is an ethereal rehabilitating tower where occupants are nursed back to health through clean, peaceful living. Designed by Team CLS, headed by award winning UK architect Darren Chan, along with Emily Lau and Jonas Sin, the building features a “hexa-skin” and pod shells that incorporate air pollution cleansing panels which also reflect light onto Solyndra solar rod arrays [1]. The Solyndras capture direct, diffused and reflected sunlight across 360-degree photovoltaic surfaces and generate power for the healing tower.
