Designed to anticipate the problem of chaotic urbanization in China, Argo Housing adopts prefab concept with the integration of green architecture and traditional value. This approach expects to offer sustainable urban communities in modern living.
The building will be constructed with a number of sustainable building techniques: the gardens reduce carbon dioxide and provide natural cooling and shade, drip irrigation from the existing high water table is used to water the plants and grey water is recycled for gardening. The materials used for paving are recycled and there is ample bicycle parking in the shade. Other heating and cooling comes from passive solar energy and ground source heat pump systems.
