The OTHLI Institute also stands out for its pedagogical focus on environmental care and awareness. Students not only learn in traditional classrooms, but also have outdoor spaces where they are taught the importance of nature and its conservation. The institute promotes environmental awareness from the earliest stages of children's lives.
The choice of specific materials and features in the design of the OTHLI Institute building was fundamental to achieve a high level of thermal comfort, maximize the entry of natural light and, at the same time, drastically reduce energy consumption. This has had a significant impact on reducing the use of air conditioning and heating systems, resulting in a 43% reduction compared to a traditional building. OTHLI Institute's sanitary furniture is an exceptional example of efficiency and innovation in water conservation. These units achieve a reduction of more than 15 million liters of water per year compared to conventional equipment available on the market. The institute's semi-Olympic swimming pool is also an outstanding example of its commitment to sustainability and the responsible use of resources. The installation of solar thermal panels in the pool area allows solar energy to be used as a heating source, drastically reducing dependence on gas for water heating.
