A Place

A Place, located in Pasay City, Philippines has received final EDGE certification from the Philippine Green Building Initiative.

A Place


ASYA Design prides itself in being a pioneer of green architectural design in Manila and its own headquarters stands as a symbol of this commitment. The 12-story office building is resource efficient, communicating the company’s values toward sustainable architecture. The headquarters serves the green building market in the Philippines and has an entire floor dedicated to tenants who work in the retail industry for green products. The building maximizes space and natural daylight, while also conserving natural resources. ASYA created a coral-like design on the façade of the building to remind the public of the rich biodiversity of coral reefs.

The building uses passive design features such as less glazing and building orientation to keep the building cooler during warm days. Other green features reduce energy and water use, resulting in lower utility bills for ASYA . The building has reflective paint and higher thermal performance glass on the exterior of the building to conserve energy. A Place is also expected to reduce its water use by up to 77 percent with the help of a rainwater harvesting system that covers the entire roof as well as grey and black water treatment and recycling systems.

As an inspiration for other companies who want to go green, ASYA is proud to live out its mission by starting with its own office. ASYA and its employees are committed to building a sustainable future for the Philippines from the buildings constructed to encouraging environmentally-friendly lifestyles for those who live in the country. The building was awarded Best Mixed-Use Office Project at the Philippine Urban Land Institute Healthy Places in 2016. A Place has received final EDGE certification from the Philippine Green Building Initiative.

The hotel offers guests a tranquil escape, while also providing easy access to the shopping hub of Ayala and nearby corporate offices such as the Philippine Stock Exchange.

Primavera Residences Towers

Torres A y B de Primavera Residences

En su afán de crear viviendas sostenibles de alta calidad en las provincias de Filipinas, Italpinas Development Corporation (IDC) ha construido las dos torres gemelas que componen el condominio Primavera Residences ubicado en Cagayán de Oro. El condominio de uso mixto es el proyecto emblemático de IDC en Filipinas. Las torres diseñadas por los arquitectos Romolo Valentino Nati y Francesco De Luca incluyen una serie de voladizos que proyectan una sombra desde adentro y así evitan que la luz directa del sol ingrese por las ventanas para mantener baja la temperatura interior. Un patio interno verde promueve la ventilación natural forzando al aire cálido a salir del edificio a través del techo, que está recubierto con paneles solares para generar electricidad destinada a las áreas comunes.

Con la certificación EDGE, IDC busca convertir Primavera Residences en un símbolo del desarrollo sostenible y mostrar que es posible desarrollar edificios ecológicos asequibles y elegantes en Filipinas. El mantenimiento de los edificios se realizará de una manera respetuosa con el medio ambiente, promoviendo la separación de los residuos, el uso de productos de limpieza sin químicos y el uso de bicicletas, además de la eficiencia en términos de recursos. Se organizarán iniciativas para aumentar el interés de los propietarios de las unidades en los beneficios de llevar una vida sostenible.
