E-den / Eco-friendly architecture


E-den's design draws inspiration from the termite mound which maintains a constant temperature through natural air circulation. It also avoids artificial finishes both inside and outside to minimize construction waste. The building completely adapts into nature and the environment so that people can walk on its hill-like features with the whole building also acting as a park. The building has units that are connected to each other and and are configured in various forms. E-den is built in an eco-friendly manner and seeks sustainable development—its the closest you can come to being a part of nature.
