Recycled Screen Residences

Paul Raff's Blue Point Residences Beat the Heat With Innovative Screens

— January 28, 2011 — Eco
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.
Trend Themes
1. Eco-friendly Screen Innovations - Opportunities exist for companies to develop innovative materials for screens, such as recycled wood or plastic, that provide both aesthetic appeal and environmental benefits.
2. Sustainable Luxury Residences - The demand for luxury residences that incorporate eco-friendly materials and design features as seen in the Blue Point Residences presents opportunities for real estate developers and architects to tap into a growing market.
3. Green Consumerism - Consumers are increasingly placing a premium on sustainability and environmental impact, providing opportunities for businesses to differentiate themselves by offering eco-friendly products and services.
Industry Implications
1. Architecture - Incorporating innovative eco-friendly materials and design features such as Paul Raff's recycled screening can provide opportunities for architects to push the boundaries of sustainable design in luxury residential projects.
2. Real Estate - The growing demand for luxury residences that prioritize sustainability creates opportunities for real estate developers to differentiate themselves and capture market share by offering eco-friendly solutions like the Blue Point Residences.
3. Materials Science - Developing new, sustainable materials for products ranging from screens to building materials can present disruptive innovation opportunities for the materials science industry.
