RB12 has a bioclimatic façade, which consists in a set of windows that plays with light like a diamond. It is the first commercial building in Brazil that uses photovoltaic panels for its own electricity production. RB12 anticipates the Brazilian law change which currently not allow the power auto-production apart from the solar panels, indeed the building already provides the places for the future fuel cells that will transform the gas street into electricity.
