Embracing eco-conscious design principles, the majority of materials are locally sourced, thus curbing carbon emissions and bolstering regional economies. The roof with a dual-layered slab finished with clay tiles, and low-e glass windows, offer exceptional insulation properties that ensure thermal comfort in this city where temperatures regularly soar past 40 degrees. Overhangs and shaded verandas help transition while reducing glare and heat gain. Water and energy efficient systems ensure sustainability of an IGBC-LEED gold rating standard.
