Confirmed by ENERGY STAR© as the most energy efficient ceiling fan in the world, Haiku's Sensor less Drive Technology™ delivers nearly twice the efficiency of conventional ceiling fan motors. A thin, lightweight remote uses infrared signals to active ten unique control settings, including the exculsive Whoosh® mode to simulate natural airflow.
Haiku's patent-pending Think Sheet™ airfoils span 60 inches and feature a unqiue aerodynamic profile, resulting in smooth, silent airflow. Made of Moso bamboo, a sustainable resource.
Bamboo is a highly renewable resource that is able to grow to maturity in as little as three to five years. This is much faster than hardwood trees which can take upwards of twenty years or more to reach maturity. This makes bamboo flooring a more sustainable choice than other timber flooring products.
Residents are able to enjoy green inner city living with both communal gardens and winter garden balconies at Velo.
Winter garden balconies are able to be enjoyed all year round with fixed and operable louvres to aid cross ventilation whilst central common spaces will enjoy an abundance of natural light, cross flow ventilation, as well as communal green sustainable gardens which are automatically watered through water harvesting technology. Residents will also have the opportunity to include vertical herb gardens within their winter garden balconies to further enhance their living space.
Residents are encouraged to take advantage of their convenient inner city location and utilise bicycles as a method of transportation. Velo will have easily accessible bicycle racking systems throughout.
An electric charging point will also be provided within each apartment’s car bay.
Photovoltaic panels convert the energy from the sun’s rays directly into electricity that will power all common areas providing significant cost reductions to residents’ strata costs whilst reducing the buildings impact on the environment.
As one of our most precious commodities, rain water is collected from the roof and fed into rainwater harvesting tanks located on each apartment level. These water tanks are designed to irrigate the communal gardens and thus save water and reduce overall strata costs to residents whilst also lowering the carbon footprint of the building.
All Velo apartments are acoustically treated to ensure increased acoustic performance. Double glazing to windows offer residents quieter apartment living. Bedrooms feature a double glazed acoustic window system to assist in reducing the vibrant Northbridge weekend entertainment noise levels if and when required.
Enclosable wintergarden balconies to select apartments provide an additional acoustic barrier. Double glazed windows will also significantly reduce the apartments heating, cooling, and lighting costs.
Induction cook tops are highly energy efficient and thus reduce energy consumption, resulting in lower power bills and a healthier environment.
LED lighting throughout the apartments not only provide cost savings, but are also highly energy efficient, have a long life span as well as being environmentally friendly.
Fully ducted range hoods throughout the apartments offer the best performance by extracting the cooking fumes from the kitchen and expelling them to the outside air via ducting.
