More plants in the vertical gardens of The Park Royal Towers in Singapore comparing to the park below. Later this year the building is completed and contains 15.000 m2 of green space. The High-end Hotel tower and Office Tower are contoured with walkways,water-features and terraces .
The vertical gardens on the building are designed to be an extension of the nearby Hong Lim Park . Although the building is constructed out of concrete, which has a high embodied carbon footprint, the overall environmental impact is mitigated by the extensive planting and kept to a minimum with pre-fabricated parts and open sides that promote natural lighting and ventilation throughout the building.
Rooftop photovoltaic panels will provide energy for reticulation and softscape lighting and a rainwater harvesting system will ensure that no new water will be used to irrigate the green spaces. In other words, this ambitious urban design will be almost completely self-sustaining. It’s no wonder, then, that it has received Singapore’s Green Mark Platinum score, the nation’s highest environmental certification!/source
