Colombia / Casa Fenix Rionegro
The philosophy of Total Home Design arrives in Latin America with the first LEED Gold certified home
Gruppo Euromobil and its three brands – Euromobil cucine, Zalf mobili and Désirée divani - are well aware of the importance of safeguarding the environment: an essential issue in modern business, involving both production processes and individual products.
This attention to environmental matters has led to the choice of Gruppo Euromobil by Edgar Hernan Parra, Director General of MPS TEOREMA INGENIERIA, as supplier of all the furniture for the first house in Latin America to achieve “LEED GOLD FOR HOMES” certification. This is an international acknowledgement assigned to buildings for their energy efficiency, carbon footprint, innovation and design.
The project was implemented by Colombian architect Diego Ospina, site architect Luis Medina, Swiss engineer René Hussy and interior designer Merce Robledo. Casa Fenix Rionegro is situated in the city of Medellín, capital of the department of Antioquia, Colombia. The strategic position of the villa, its energy and water efficiency, the use of sustainable materials and the quality of the interiors are just some of the numerous benefits that have led to its acknowledgement and certification. Gruppo Euromobil, a leading Italian company in the furniture trade, is ideal as a partner in this challenge to safeguard the environment. The company pursues a project defined Ecosustainable Innovation Culture that embraces the founding elements of our across the board corporate philosophy involving production processes and products.
