Paul Raff

Paul Raff Studio won the 2009 Royal Architectural Institute of Canada's 'Excellence Innovations In Architecture' award for designing Bluepoint's Louver Fa├žade System. The design was generated from a simple idea to maximize sea views while maintaining privacy. This then led to further ecological benefits including reducing cooling costs by shading the homes from the tropical sun. In the creation of Bluepoint Condos, great respect has been given to the environment.

 

Rooftop landscaping has been designed to ensure the reduction of cooling costs and to help the development fit into its natural surroundings. Building materials and all engineering systems have been chosen to reduce operation and maintenance costs, and minimize negative effects on the surrounding ecosystem.
