Gallery: The Canopy is a Soaring Hong Kong Skyscraper Enveloped in Towe...

 
Each apartment is surrounded by what Boutique Design call a "green envelope".

Each apartment has the feel of a modern-day treehouse, with luxurious interior spaces that open out onto a 525 square foot garden balcony. The designers built standardized units to minimize construction cost and to ensure that the tower can be easily replicated. Boutique Design call the gardens a “green envelope,” enabling the unusual tower to integrate with its surroundings.

Through their work the studio is exploring possibilities of renovation in Hong Kong. They say they aim “to offer a different vision for the future development of Hong Kong, more green and opened to the outside, respectful and aware of its environment.”

    How much did this cost? I want to put it into the butlr.com system as an item but yet there seems to be nice relevant price for the structure!
