The new MINT-E5 housing project located in the heart of Istanbul represents a new sustainable building trend in the rapidly changing urban area. Developed by Mint and designed by RMJM, MINT E-5 is conveniently located in terms of public transportation, schools and retail shopping, offering an ideal location for those who want to live in the center of Istanbul.
Mint E-5 is a project that meets the demand for environmentally friendly urban lifestyles where residents can reduce their carbon footprint and save on utilities.
MINT E-5 is equipped with high performance glass to limit energy required for heating and cooling. The structure is also equipped with movable sunshade panels that blend faultlessly with the building’s façade. Sustainable building materials such as autoclaved aerated concrete blocks have also been selected with care to reduce embodied energy.
Each household will save an estimated $26 per month on utilities.
