Making sure that the project met the most stringent sustainability requirements was high on the designers’ agenda, so they commissioned a local environmental consultancy – Master Ambiental  – to lead the green way. With their guidance, materials were sourced locally, water was used carefully, and energy was apportioned efficiently. But ensuring that a design is truly sustainable  frequently transcends just the site and materials.
So Guilherme Torres also focused on establishing a wholesome commercial center that would instill pride in Londrina’s community  and lift them up and usher in a new era of concerned, purposeful development. The long sight lines, natural facades , and splashes of yellow are definitely something to be proud of, and we hope to see a lot more from this team in the future.
