Key design principles


·      Design and build to achieve a sustainable urban environment


·      Make the users the creators of the quality of the living and working environment


·      build using green materials


The tower goes in the direction of sustainable development as it represents a spatial image which integrates architecture, engineering and bio-climate research.


The Green Tower proves that today it is possible to take an “alternative” road using available resources. The tower generates energy and at the same time abates environmental pollution by over 70% compared to traditionally designed buildings having the same volume.


As indicated in the functional layout, the standard apartments, which feature spacious balconies, are on the lower floors of the tower. The higher portion of the building - the so-called “Admiral floors” - consists of apartments that are a sort of suspended villas.


The tower can host a number of common areas which round off the building functions and make it more livable.


In addition to the large greenhouse, which can be used as a meeting place during free time as well as a space for parties and events, alternatively to the standard plan, the portion of the building between the Standard Floors and the Admiral Floors may be arranged into a double story hosting a bar, a restaurant and a spa on two levels.
