Danish Green Ways of Life

Denmark is a world class leader in the practice and promotion of sustainable living . With Earth Day approaching, what better time is there for Singapore to learn from their achievements in green living.  SPACE and Cubes magazine  has challenged 5 design firms in Singapore to study the different elements of the ecological efforts in Denmark and to interpret them to fit the Singapore fabric.

ARAGREENS | INNOVATIVE GREEN DESIGN

Designed by WOW Dlab to be a multigenerational residential community, the AraGreens located in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia was developed from a concept inspired from bio-mimicry and environmental technology for green living.  The project will qualify for the Building and Construction Authority (BCI) Platinum Green Mark, a reflection of the developer’s desire to be a socially and environmentally responsible leader of sustainable developments. Based on a rhizhomic system of growth whereby in reproduction, horizontal underground stems strike new roots down into the soil and shoot new stems up to the surface, the architecture will enable three generations to live in harmony both socially and environmentally. The project is currently under construction and scheduled for completion in 2015.         Here are some of the notable sustainable features throughout the development.   INDOOR ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITIES Optimizing & Maximizing Unobstructed Tower View Each residential tower is strategically oriented on site to ...
