Manatí Set House

Puerto Vallarta 2006

On a 1.5-hectare plot of land in a border area between different socioeconomic levels, this master plan was not assumed as just another housing project, but rather as a strategic project for social and urban integration. It clearly raises the challenge of doing a real estate business by making a city, in a win-win scheme with its context, contradicting the precepts established by the prevailing closed subdivisions at this time.

On the one hand, it proposes the continuity of the urban road structure, investing ground in opening up to interaction with one of the most conflictive neighborhoods in the area; developing a horizontal and vertical housing front and services towards the street and a horizontal and vertical closed condominium to the interior, taking advantage of the market trend but offering the city the interaction with living spaces and not with an eternal wall; In addition, there is a wider and wooded sidewalk than the dominant ones in the area with ramps at the corners.
