Designed by DXMID in 2020, the captivating Colive.me Ahangama project exemplifies the firm's dedication to responsible design. This innovative co-living space harmoniously intertwines environmental stewardship with a distinctive and unforgettable experience.
Situated in the heart of Sri Lanka's southern coast, Colive.me Ahangama transcends mere aesthetics and functionality by incorporating sustainable practices throughout its design. Much like a product designer considers an iPhone's life cycle, DXMID has focused on the life cycle assessment of this building, ensuring minimal environmental impact and the ability to recycle at least 98% of its components.
Key sustainability features include:
A green wall that promotes natural cooling and reduces energy consumption
A smart design that maximizes natural ventilation and light, decreasing the reliance on artificial cooling and lighting
Solar panels that generate clean energy to power the building
A comprehensive waste management system that recycles all waste produced by the community
An innovative design that allows the building to be dismantled, relocated, or recycled with minimal environmental impact
The Colive.me Ahangama project highlights the harmony between modern design, nature, and sustainability. More than just a living space, it stands as a testament to DXMID's commitment to creating eco-conscious designs that inspire connection, creativity, and responsible living.
