‘The Canopy’ is a green apartment building located in Hong Kong, China. It’s a fully equipped apartment building with a little twist. The exterior of the building features rows and rows of greenery like trees and bushes with a three-hundred and sixty degree design. This format is ideal to maximize natural light coming in while the outdoor greenery provides a natural shade during the summer.

The multi-floor building is composed of alternating floor designs called ‘type A’ and ‘type B’ so not every floor appears the same one after another. The main floor is equipped with a living room, kitchen, study, guest room, maid’s room and garden. The mezzanine has two master bedrooms and two bathrooms. This apartment building inspires eco designs for apartment living, allowing more greenery and less energy usage.
