Oxygen Eco-Tower, awarded the “People’s Choice Award” at MIPIM, the largest international real estate fair, integrates elegance, well-being and technology in the concept of vertical residence. It is a true showcase for Italian expertise and sustainable design, especially as it was the outcome of close cooperation between the architects and a series of leading Italian companies that brought their technologies and products to the design table.
The concept design is developed from the geometric model of a flower that grows upward, with an organic shape. A vertical constellation of villas, a 125.800 sqm residential tower, green and luxurious, developed on 75 floors (total height of 277 meters), designed to fulfill the dreams and meet the needs of people who will live those spaces. The 161 villas, each one with private garden and swimming pool, are organized in 4 different typologies, surrounded by 61.000 sqm of gardens, where man and nature live in symbiosis.
The four different typologies of villas are repeated in sequence creating an amazing effect, forming the tower. Shops, restaurants, library, kindergarten, VIP-lounge, cigar bar, SPA, tennis courts, running track and large swimming pools are part of the services, further improving the quality of life to the residents.
This project becomes a vehicle for the promotion of sustainable design. A sustainable technology that expresses itself in every design choice, that transforms Oxygen Eco-Tower into a true green-building thanks to technical solutions which allow a strong synergy with the environment by using natural energies. The entire roof is set up for auto-generation of electricity through photovoltaic panels; the “heating and cooling” system is provided by a geothermal system, eliminating carbon dioxide emissions; a centralized ventilation system filters the outside air, ensuring the correct temperature in a natural way; regenerative and clever use of energy utilized for the elevators allows a considerable energy saving; and special pools collect the rainwater, preserving the aquifer.
