A Sustainable High-Rise Greens the Sydney Skyline

A Sustainable High-Rise Greens the Sydney Skyline | Top CAD Experts updates |

While action toward building ‘greener’ more sustainable structures is gaining momentum in Europe and America, an office tower from down-under is putting Australia on the green buildings map.

A 30 story high-rise office tower in Sydney, Australia’s central business district, 1 Bligh Street a treasure trove of sustainable innovation and design.Designed by Architectus and Ingenhoven Architects, this environmentally responsible office tower is set to create a benchmark in Australia for sustainable high-rise buildings and provide an enduring presence on the city skyline.

“The dramatic, naturally-ventilated central atrium connects the office workers with nature at the inner depths of the plan, giving a sense of openness for the entire building. The series of communal spaces throughout the building, and especially the fantastic rooftop garden, add greatly to the quality of life for the tenants.”

18 Kowloon East, Hong Kong, by Aedas

18 Kowloon East, Hong Kong, by Aedas | Top CAD Experts updates |

Kowloon Bay, Hong Kong, once dependent on manufacturing, is undergoing transformation of rejuvenation. With this 28-story mixed-use building located in a community of dense industrial blocks, it begins to investigate the possibility of providing an environmentally sustainable design in an industrial area. The target is to contribute to the greening of the neighbourhood and to enhance the quality of life for building users as well as the pedestrians on the street level.

Extensive planting at the carpark floors, located at the lower portion of the tower, visually greens the neighborhood and also filters and improves air quality.
