The Blue Point Residences are a luxury residential complex on Phuket Island that effectively juggle the two competing concerns of solar heat gain and outward aesthetics.

To meet this challenge, architect and designer Paul Raff devised an ingenious kind of recycled screening made from a lightweight wood/plastic mixture that allow residents of the Blue Point Residences to enjoy unimpeded breathtaking views of Phuket Island while also keeping cool.

Implications - As society moves towards a more eco-conscious mode of living, consumers from all walks of life are looking for ways to lessen their carbon footprint on the environment. Corporations should implement green initiatives inside and outside the work environment to build empathetic consumer relations between themselves and potential and existing customers.
