The Beacon is the name of a brand new residential tower, planned for the city of London, that is all set to take the title of world's most eco-friendly residential tower, thanks to a range of intelligent design measures and smart green technologies.

Constructed by Lumiere Developments, this particular residential tower will make use of electricity generated from solar panels embedded into the balconies of every apartment, making for 860 kilowatts of energy gains. Elsewhere, the building will make use of a pair of wind turbines to generate extra energy, with any surplus power stored for future use. The building will also make use of rainwater for toilet flushes and gardening, making for substantial water savings.

This residential tower well and truly lives up to its name, as it is set to be a beacon of inspiration for eco-friendly architecture projects everywhere.
