Property sustainability

Casa Lum lighting was designed in accordance with the American ANSI / ASHRAE / IESNA Standard 90. 1-2007, ENERGY STANDARD FOR BUILDINGS, based on LEED V.3 Certification.

95% of the woods that were acquired during the remodeling process have FSC certification as they come from forests that are assured of conservation. We reused beams, columns, girders and andirons that belonged to the original structure of the property.

Casa Lum Restaurant is dedicated to contemporary cuisine with a regional touch, complemented by an extensive menu of drinks and wines.

Economic performance

We use 9,000 tiles from demolished buildings, thus promoting a culture of reuse.

The plaster that covers the original adobe walls was made according to the traditional form with natural materials such as: lime, prickly pear slime and water.

We reconditioned and reused 25 doors and windows of the original house.
