Developed by Inmgenio, the REBEL residential building offers a different kind of lifestyle. With a rooftop garden covering 50 percent of the roof, unique architecture, and environmentally-friendly materials, REBEL provides a tranquil escape from Lima’s bustling city center. The building has less glazing on the façade and external shading devices to conserve energy and eliminate the need for air conditioning. Such green features allow residents to save from $62 to $100 in utility bills, depending on the type of unit. Residents can choose from 44 modern apartments consisting of 2, 3, and 4-bedrooms units.
As the population in greater Lima expands, the government in Lima’s residential district of San Borja is ensuring the area grows sustainably in tandem. REBEL is one of several innovatively designed housing developments that rewards property developers with a height bonus incentive for committing to projects that earn green building certification.
Inmgenio has over seven years of experience developing innovative and sustainable housing for the greater Lima area. The company is committed to increasing the quality of life for its customers by helping them obtain savings through high-quality buildings. Inmgenio sought the help of architectural design firm Reusche + Reyna Atelier, sustainability consultant Diámetro Arquitectura + Sostenibilidad, and engineering firm Prisma Ingeniera to develop REBEL.
REBEL has received final EDGE certification from GBCI.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, reflective paint and tiles for the roof, external shading devices, energy-saving lighting, and lighting controls for common areas and outdoor spaces.
Low-flow showerheads, low-flow faucets, and dual flush for water closets.
Concrete filler floor slabs and roof construction, in-situ reinforced internal and external walls, and cored (with holes) bricks with plaster on both sides for internal and external walls.
*Part of the energy efficiency percentage may be associated with virtual energy for comfort depending on the presence of heating and cooling systems. Note that virtual energy does not contribute savings to utility bills.
