Maynilad Water Complex Proposal / HartnessVision

Located in front of Manila City Hall, the proposed project by HartnessVision integrates ‘water branding’ into the architecture of this Maynilad customer facility. The site is organized around 3 programmed axes (nature, access, amenities) in which pedestrians have priority. The expression of water-channeling and healthy clean water resources play important roles in their concept. More images and project description after the break.

The new roof configuration allows for water collection and retention as well as climate control. When it rains the buildings become playful interactive sculptures. All-glass enclosures mark access points and provide infrastructure for cooling thermal chimneys.
