Green solutions implemented in the building are: suitable level of thermal comfort, an opportunity for the building users to control lighting, heating and cooling systems, using environmental friendly materials etc. Green Wings simple form and no obstruction buildings in vicinity guarantee very good access to the daylight on each floor. The original blinds made out of double aluminum sheet installed on the building’s façade is not the esthetic feature only but can be used as a barrier to reduce outdoor noise and excessive daylight amount. Facilities for cyclists such as bike stands, lockers and showers should encourage them to use more sustainable ways of transport.
