High-rise Habitat

 

The high-rise habitat combines dense urban development with a green habitat adding new public space, and nature in a terraced landscape of parks. A mix of city and nature is created in the combination of a complete green roof and traditional stepped high-rise building. The stepped landscape offers a variety of pocket parks from street level parks to roof parks and sky parks. The green roof is a new ecosystem increasing biodiversity, cooling the building as well as surrounding city spaces by absorbing and vaporizing rainwater.
