Rainwater for watering plants

Various solutions have been implemented in ORIGO ONE for saving water, reducing rainwater run-off, and encouraging rainwater infiltration on the green roofs and terraces of the courtyards. The terraces and green roofs are watered using rainwater, which reduces run-off into municipal stormwater sewers.

To reduce use of water resources, if necessary, flowerbeds will be watered manually instead of using a sprinkler system.

According to the BREEAM requirements, the brightness of outdoor advertisements and lamps is reduced during night-time to reduce light pollution in the city.  We maximally use daylight for the terrace gardens.

In the offices, the depth of rooms is calculated in such a way to ensure that daylight illuminates as much of the room as possible.

Indoor climate in the building

The new ORIGO ONE building is not only visually pleasing from outside, but it also caters to the needs of the everyday life and health of its employees and visitors by ensuring optimum lighting, room acoustics, thermal comfort and air quality. For example, the ventilation system has carbon filters that reduce the air pollution created by diesel trains arriving at the station and its impact on human health.
