The Triptyque, renowned Franco-Brazilian firm dedicated to sustainable design brings to Brazil the first corporate building based power generation: the RB12 . Located on Rio Branco Avenue, the main commercial center of the path of Rio de Janeiro, the building will undergo a process of retrofit-green and will feature a bioclimatic façade, composed by a set of glasses with diamond sparkle zigzag, landscaping and suspended generation of energy through solar panel and fuel cell.
The RB12 will bring an innovative concept of sustainability, based on energy production and follow the global trend of retrofit-green, which is the adaptation and improvement of old buildings so that they achieve a sustainable pattern. Among the environmental requirements, are thermal comfort, management of water consumption, the use of natural light and solar panels and fuel cell energy generation.
