Combining High Performance with Design Excellence
DRPILLA embraced sustainability as a key element of this project long before LEED became the industry standard. The site design limits irrigation demands by reducing conventional turf, integrating indigenous and drought tolerant plantings, and utilizing a harvested rainwater system for irrigation. The building design offers shading on all sides by balcony overhangs and roof projections to limit heat gains. The design also utilizes FSC wood products, automated day lighting systems, and automated HVAC sensors.
