Marinella, co-developed by K. Wah International, Sino Land and Nan Fung, is the first private residential project in Hong Kong achieving Final Platinum grade. Marinella is an epitome of ultimate luxury while showcasing innovative environmental-friendly design with expansive greenery. Sited with long façade facing the south direction, residents can enjoy the magnificent view of The Aberdeen Marina Club. The design not only allows more natural light to come in, but it also maintains a desirable thermal comfort for the residents.
Committed to become a fully-certified green building, Marinella has achieved the Platinum Rating of Final Assessment under the BEAM Plus NB V1.1 of the Hong Kong Green Building Council on 24th March 2014, an internationally recognised honour. Based on a ‘green building’ model, Marinella was conceptualised with environmental sustainability in mind, from the construction process to the building features, incorporating the four green elements of light, oxygen, water and energy, to create a cozy living space for its occupants.
The implementation of soft landscape was maximised with the provision of green roof and sky garden with over 40% coverage of native species in Marinella. The green roof, trees and shrubs are planted to reduce building heat gain, carbon emission and air pollution. The sky garden and 5-metre gap between two building blocks further enhanced the microclimate by allowing permeability and bringing in natural ventilation. The well-being of the residents and the surrounding neighbourhood are improved by consciously reducing the carbon emmission of the development.
Sustainability is the concept of managing natural resources in a manner that does not cause harm to the ecosystem while permitting human activity to be productive and long lasting. Marinella is designed to greatly reduce maintenance and utility costs, lessening financial burden for owners. With all the green features implemented, Marinella is truly committed to creating a green future for the next generation.
