THE RIVER re-defines quality in thought, design, and execution. South-facing triple-glazed windows capture passive solar heat in the winter, while extended west-facing fins reduce heat intake during the summer. In the process of creating a more comfortable living environment, these innovative details also reduce energy usage along with high-efficiency plumbing features to reduce water consumption. Inspired by nature, our vegetated green roof serves both an aesthetic and practical purpose. While complementing the lush green environment of the beautiful river setting it also serves to capture and slowly filter rain water into the city storm system. These are just a few of the defining features that elevate THE RIVER and establish a new benchmark in quality and intelligent, sustainable design for the future.
