• London’s first carbon neutral building packs solar panels and extensive green roofs

  • London has just welcomed home its first truly green and completely carbon neutral building. By the Nomura Group, a Japanese financial services company, this building located on the north bank of the Thames sports green roofs and solar panels and was designed by London-based Fletcher Priest Architects. Using 30% of the infrastructure from a former project on the same site in an attempt to reduce costs and building material, this five-storey office makes use of timber and packs a total floor space of about 800,140 square feet. Complete with a high-performance façade that makes optimal use of natural lighting and a lot of thought put into efficiency of water usage and electricity use, this swanky green building will pave the way for green architecture in the city of London.
