Smart and Green Building in Repulse Bay

Project Site

  • Repulse Bay, Hong Kong


Originally built in the 1950’s, the residential building at 4 Headland is representative of buildings constructed in that era. With recent renovation it has become the first BREEAM certified residence in Asia in the category of "domestic refurbishment" and one that is truly smart and energy efficient. Elevant-Garde has equipped the property with top-notch connectivity without altering its original structure and layout, and retrofitted its 6 apartments with comprehensive smart home systems. Finally, EVG devised a Control Free-based Intelligent Building Management System (i-BMS).
