Entry Description

This project is a community centre project built by Cyberview
Sdn. Bhd. The Recycling Collection Centre was designed to
be a Green Certified Building and used various materials that
are considered green or recyclable. It is a pilot project or a
prototype concept that can be replicated elsewhere. The
building is designed to face North South with minimum
exposure to East and West sun. The roof is designed to tilt
Southeast for maximum exposure to the sun for future
installation of solar panels. A signature free standing wall is
incorporated into the building to act as a focal point to
identify the building from far.
