What makes this green?

The building has been designed to be comfortable with natural ventilation with a very low energy footprint.

We love the shape and design aesthetics of the building. It is airy with plenty of natural lighting and less heat due to green building concepts used. Green Evolution’s strengths include design excellence and expertise in alternate material and costing measures.
