Surrounding space is currently experiencing transformation from a predominantly production and warehouse area to higher systems of spatial use. The new programme draws the entire city area closer to downtown urban zones. Complex comprises three apartment buildings and and an office building, a business volume to the north and a series of retail spaces along the street allow for quieter residential programmes to develop in the middle, in quiet green areas along the channel. In the center of the plot, three low residential sections are positioned, which open their outdoor spaces to the south and connect with residential programs, on the other side of the channel. Facades in printed plaster envelop three sides of the building and connect to the Eastern - urban facades, clad in white stone of various textures. The building's footprint has been designed as environmentally friendly. Location and orientation of each building have been adjusted to benefit well from good natural lighting conditions from east and west. The building incorporates geothermal heat exchangers within source structural piles, which are equipped with geosondes. Energy from geosondes is used for heating and cooling of buildings and preparation of sanitary water. Sanitary water for the buildings is partially also prepared by solar heat exchangers. Solar energy also additionally supports heating of buildings. Geothermal heat exchangers are connected to the geothermal accumulation volume of soil under the building so that it is also possible to run the system without using the heat pump on days when pumping the heat transfer medium under the building suffices. Central intelligent supervisory system controls all vital energy distribution elements of the office building, including energy recuperation and ventilation systems and all that with respect to current input economic parameters. The building is is expected to reduce the carbon footprint for 31.060 kg of CO2 every year.
