Environmentally sustainable residential design
Case study: Arya Residences, Philippines
Designed by Australian firm, Crone Partners, Arya Residences is the first and only top-end development in the Philippines built to achieve dual green building certification.
Crone Partners, pioneers of Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) in Australia, partnered with developers ArthaLand Corporation to build the 640-apartment residential complex. ArthaLand visited Australia to see examples of green building expertise first-hand.
Arya Residences is poised to become the first residential high-rise in the country to obtain Gold level certification under the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.
The boutique condominium oriented its towers and designed the stacking of its apartments to ensure optimum cross-ventilation and take advantage of sea breezes, as well as utilising Double-E Glaze glass and multi-split mini inverter air conditioning for maximum thermal comfort. The low emissivity Double-E Glaze coating minimizes solar heat gain and energy loss while maximising the penetration of light.
