The skycubes act as individual units featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and a lot of natural lighting. Each would include rooftop terraces which could be used is different ways: as playgrounds, urban gardens, barbecue areas or sun decks. The glass skin would have light-transmitting properties that could reduce the cost of heating and air conditioning and eliminate the need for screens or curtains.

In addition to its energy-efficient glass skin and green areas, the building would use a combined heat and power station and a heat recovery system, both of which could be monitored via different apps and features installed within the units

The wooden skyscraper could soon become reality, as the architects are already negotiating with developers in Switzerland.
