Milroy Perera Associates unveiled it’s design for the world’s tallest residential vertical garden in Sri Lanka. The architects collaborated with Mäga Engineering to design the Clearpoint Tower, which will house 164 apartments across 46 floors packed with greenery. The project aims to create a vertically distributed experience of living on the ground floor and boasts several sustainable features. To minimize solar heat gain, the architects have designed the entire building such that no glass surfaces are directly exposed to sunlight. Air conditioning in the tower located 10km from Colombo in Kotte is reduced to a minimum with optimal orientation of apartments, which allows for natural ventilation. In addition, the plants will act as sound and heat buffers and provide cleaner air. The vertical garden will be watered using an automated drip irrigation system that saves water and works independently from the occupants.
