A NEW “green” building is being developed within Ayala Land, Inc.’s Nuvali estate in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.

LHK Square South, a project of JSLA Architects, is located in Nuvali’s Lakeside Evozone-South.

JSLA said it aims to secure a Leader in Energy and Environmental Design Gold certification for LHK Square South.  Its features include a double-glazed curtain glass system, a LED lighting system, and a variable refrigerant flow cooling technology.

The nine-storey building has a gross leasable area of 11,200 square meters, and is registered with the Philippine Economic Zone Authority. It is set to be completed by 2023.

“We may be spending a bit more in creating a future-ready project, but we believe that this is what the market needs now and in the future. Going green in design means building for a world that is environmentally-conscious and sound, and we’re shaping that here in Nuvali,” Jose Siao Ling, founder of JSLA Architects, said in a statement.
