Ecolife Capitol’s three high-rise residential towers introduced over 630 green apartments to the housing market in Ha Noi, Vietnam. To maximize energy savings and ensure occupant comfort, each of the apartments in the development are designed to maximize natural ventilation and feature low-flow plumbing fixtures, LED lighting and low-E double-glazed windows.

Ecolife Capitol was built by Capital House, a real estate investor dedicated to improving the resource efficiency of commercial and social housing through the use of energy-smart architectural design. Ecolife Capitol received final EDGE certification from SGS Vietnam.
