The Gate Heliopolis RAISES THE BAR FOR ‘GREEN BUILDING’ IN EGYPT AND THE MIDDLE EAST
Imagine a place where “Green” is not just the way of architecture but a state of mind.
Strategically located in Al Nozha Street in the heart of Heliopolis district, the Gate is the first of its kind sustainable multi-use complex in Egypt designed by the Paris-based firm Vincent Callebaut Architectures (VCA). The main objective behind the cutting edge urban development is raise awareness about sustainable architecture designed to fight global warming and maintain an eco-friendly global environment.
Integrating a multitude of green architectural features, including a giant solar roof canopy covering the complex’s rooftop terraces, the Gate features 1000 apartments, business and commercial units within a vertical green hyper-connected ecosystem.
The Gate showcases its green credentials in combining bioclimatic rules such as solar cycle and prevailing wind directions on the one hand, and renewable energy technologies in the form of wind turbines, thermal solar energy, photovoltaic solar energy, geothermal energy and biomass on the other hand.
The entire complex is enclosed in a sequence of rectangular volumes arranged around a central street dubbed the ‘Boulevard’, with a steel mesh canopy enveloping the complete scheme, supporting a series of solar panels, heating tubes and vertical wind-catching tunnels that cascade into the lower courtyards.
Inspired by the technology of wind catching towers, or Malqaf, originally developed in Ancient Egypt, the Gate comprises 9 megatrees to function as passive cooling systems.. Integrated air shafts will provide natural ventilation for each apartment, while walkable photovoltaic cells using UV radiation will cover the solar roof to generate much of the building’s electricity. A row of self-sufficient wind turbine prototypes, entitled ‘the phylolight’, lining the inner street are additionally employed to generate electricity.
Residents will be provided with a variety of interactive home automation options to elevate the Gate living experience. The natural HVAC automation allows residents to customize lighting, music, video, communication and security features according to their personal preferences while the innovative technology orchestrate, on their behalf, efficient energy consumption
The entire roof is transformed into a community get-together with food gardens, orchards, infinity pools, and a sports area.
The Gate, set to be launched by the end of the month, is meticulously designed to incorporate unprecedented smart automation features offering a sophisticated level of elegant comfort
Slated to be launched by the end of the month, The Gate will represent a living proof of how cities can accommodate rapid urbanization and dramatically reduce energy and water consumption through the ideal symbiosis between superior quality of life and respect for the environment.
With an unprecedented stylish design, The Gate will retain the allure of the phenomenal suburb of Heliopolis, and definitely become Egypt new iconic landmark in its own right.
