A boutique property developer in Barcelona is building new homes with green credentials.
Norvet’s brand-new townhouses on Jaén Street, in the heart of Barcelona’s trendy Gracia district, will come with a Green Certificate from the Green Building Council of Spain (GBCe) – a non-profit association that promotes the commitment of the Government, Public Administrations, businesses, and social agents in promoting sustainable and environmentally friendly building practises.
The certificate is a sign of sustainable building, and high standards. The few buildings that hold it are assessed across their entire lifecycle on the environmental impact of their construction, their energy efficiency, and their use of land and natural resources.
Vertical Urban Garden
The green credentials of these townhouses on Jaen street are not just about saving the planet. Green design features such as vertical urban gardens will also enhance the quality of life of the owners.
Working together with sustainable ecosystem engineers Verdtical, Norvet have harnessed state-of-the-art techniques to create a glorious living wall of biodiverse local plants that give the homes a secret garden feel. At the vanguard of green design and technology, this vertical garden brings these homes to life in a literal way.
Designed to ensure that texture and color play out in perfect harmony over the year, these gardens uses the latest irrigation systems to minimize consumption and maintenance, and meet Barcelona’s stringent water-use regulations, even in the height of summer.
The result? These homes will be an oasis of nature and calm in the beating heart of the city within walking distance of landmarks such as Gaudi’s Güell Park and Sagrada Familia cathedral.
