Casas PazV

Casas PazV

Casas PazV is located in Ibarra, the capital city of the Imbabura province of Ecuador. Residents of the complex’s seven homes will enjoy private lots and easy access to nearby parks, shops and restaurants.

Homeowners will benefit from lower utility bills as all units feature less glazing than typical homes, with energy-saving lighting, low-flow plumbing fixtures and more.

Casas PazV was developed by María Paz Andrade Nicolalde and has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.
