What is it?Sustainable development is a process in meeting the needs of human development while sustaining the ability of nature to provide natural resources upon which the society and the entire ecosystem depends.
Shading ventilation and light
Structured with a planned shading system, Primavera City’s external louvers minimize solar illumination on the windows and moderate the temperature inside each unit. The balconies are also designed to shade the windows yet allow enough light to enter the unit. This reduces electricity consumption during daytime period.
In Primavera CityThe combination of natural ventilation, solar energy, external louvers, water recycling, rain harvesting, and other green features make Primavera City a landmark in sustainable development.
The total amount of CO2 emissions that will be offset by Primavera City is equal to the effect of planting around 20,000 trees.
A natural way to refresh your homeThe building’s design increases natural ventilation and decreases aircon energy consumption.
The design simulations have caIculated that the rate of air circulation will increase up to 100% as compared to a regular building.
Take your electricity from the sunPrimavera City is a pioneering concept in producing and distributing renewable energy. Envisioned as a partially self-sustaining power eco-system, it uses a massive, built-in array of photovoltaic panels.
Primavera City will generate a substantial amount of its power requirements on-site.
