The Highwood is the tallest building on the Elephant Park masterplan. The facade is composed of anodised aluminium fins and bronze panels. A super order of horizontal bands is denser at the base and increasing in scale aligned Fibonacci sequence, culminating in an open framed crown. The Highwood plugs in to the CHP district heating system used by Elephant Park, with low NOx emissions to aid pollution prevention. Climate change mitigation is achieved through a significant reduction of regulated CO2 emissions, 40 per cent. All apartments achieve CfSH level 4. The building uses robust materials with a design life of 60 years.
