Energy & Sustainability 

SWAPP presented several cost-effective designs that complied with the strict energy code, while also achieving high levels of sustainability. 

Net-zero energy

Achieved 25% savings in energy usage through a highly efficient design utilizing efficient HVAC systems, low-consumption lighting, and more.

Code compliance

Met or exceeded compliance requirements with all building, environmental, and other codes and regulations.

Recycling and local materials

40% reduction in carbon footprint vs. typical buildings.

Renewable energy

Solar-ready roof 

The seven-story building is enriched with landscape and articulated with thin wooden slabs and a rhythmic façade configuration. Through the structure of the balconies, emerges an architectural style that expresses visible assemblies and sliding panels

Open Space Configuration

The open gallery strategy makes possible a run-through configuration for all flats, an intrinsic quality allowing space expansion, clearance of corridors, as well as simple and effective natural ventilation.

The balconies protect the shutters and the woodwork by setting them back from bad weather.
