Clearpoint Residencies in Rajagiriya, Sri Lanka is set to be the world's tallest residential vertical garden building and a set a precedent for other sustainable buildings of the future.
The design comes from Milroy Perera Associates and Mäga Engineering, and its exterior has notable features like solar panels that will provide electricity and the lush green plants that coat the building will regulate temperatures and noise. The placements of windows are optimized for cross-ventilation and are out of the way from direct access to sunlight, which significantly reduces the need for air conditioning inside the apartments. This was achieved by expanding the terrace space, which also gives occupants more space to enjoy outdoors.
The building is set to have 46 floors, a total of 164 apartments and a completion date in 2015.
