Located on the outskirts of Lima in the San Borja neighborhood, Edificio Multifamiliar Sostenible Bronsino consists of six three-bedroom apartments. The housing project is part of a growing green building movement in the district born out of a government incentive. Developers who earn a green building certification for their projects are awarded a height bonus that allows them to build taller. Like other EDGE-certified projects REBEL and Hermano Lobo 188, Edificio Multifamiliar Sostenible Bronsino features distinctive architecture and a rooftop garden, offering residents a peaceful escape from the bustling city of Lima.
The apartment complex at Edificio Multifamiliar Sostenible Bronsino has less glazing on the façade to reduce energy consumption, while water-efficient water closets reduce the use of water. Natural ventilation helps to keep the building cool without the need for air-conditioning units. Construction materials such as honeycomb clay blocks were chosen to reduce embodied energy in materials. By making simple changes to design, developers Edificasa F&S Construcciones Inmobiliarias implemented these features with no additional cost.
Edificio Multifamiliar Sostenible Bronsino has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.
