Art Home is a low-income housing complex on the outskirts of São Paulo. Residents of the complex’s 378 two-bedroom units will enjoy numerous amenities, including a swimming pool, playground, barbecue area and soccer field.
The pair of 24-story buildings in the complex were designed to reduce energy and water usage, which will help residents to save an estimated 20 percent on utility costs. Energy-efficient lighting, external shading devices and reflective paint will contribute to the building’s energy savings, while dual-flush water closets and water-efficient plumbing features will contribute to the building’s water savings.
Art Home’s developer, Paladin Realty, has invested in projects across Latin America, bringing more affordable housing to the market in a socially and environmentally responsible way. The group has financed EDGE-certified projects throughout the region, including Bosque de Serra in Brazil, Villas del Fresno in Mexico and Verah Etapa in Peru. Art Home is being constructed by Kallas Incorporações & Construções and managed by Tallento Engenharia.
Art Home has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.
