Leading international “green” architect Chad Oppenheim of Oppenheim Architecture + Design was selected by top Philippine developer, The Net Group, to design the nation’s first certified green project in Taguig City, Philippines. The Net Metropolis is the flagship pilot development of the recently created Philippine Green Building Council (PHILGBC) to answer to the local environment’s specific needs.
Oppenheim, who has a growing reputation for his green design work, participated with the PHILGBC in the actual creation of the nation’s new rating system BERDE (Building for Ecologically Responsive Design Excellence) to apply to the design of the first tower in the project, The Net Lima.
