The kitchen garden is irrigated by storm water from the roof. Organic waste generated by the kitchens serves as compost for the garden. Durable materials were combined with energy saving strategies such as insulating fibre cement panel cladding, high performance windows, a sophisticated mechanical system, heat recovery, as well as drain water heat recovery from the common laundry facilities. A reduced carbon footprint is further achieved with a low maintenance green roof and rainwater collection for the terrace gardens.
