Sustainability

Philanthropy House boasts numerous energy and environmental innovations:

 

  • It is designed to minimise temperature fluctuations, with suspended ceilings that make smart use of the inertia within the concrete slabs and passive power, a CO2 free production technique
  • Triple glazing maximises energy efficiency and reduces noise pollution
  • Automated shutters and energy efficient glazing ensure that the space does not overheat, while shutters on lower floors project light upwards in order to avoid a “shutters down − lights on” scenario
  • Material recovered during the building’s renovation work was recycled and all its new materials have low environmental impact
