CHAI WAN
GREEN CANYON
HONG KONG

Award winning HK Government competition.

Twin towers are sited close together to form an urban "Canyon" to assist wind flow which is harnessed via wind turbines on the facade.

The Green Canyon Centre employs planted trellises on its exterior to diffuse heat gain and sunlight. Internally, it is covered in mineral wool insulation and partitioned by a thermal blanket to keep cool air from dissipating. The raised base and trellises all for cool air ventilation along its exterior.
