Sustainable Tower is new residential development planned for the Putrajaya waterfront known as Precint 4. The design for Precint 4 comes from Studio Nicoletti Associati and Malaysian architects Hijjas Kasturi Associates. The architect's goal was to design building that tell of its place of origin which is culturally modern, islamic and tropical in nature.Added to this is Nicoletti’s extensive experience in design and construction for extreme climates.
The design, however, is a refreshing and original with unique, marine-inspired structures – which also draw from traditional Islamic designs – arranged in a permeable, radiating block of bioclimatic architecture.
It is also said that the buildings will source from alternative energy and are expected to produce 50% less CO2 emissions than similar residential projects.
