The usual access configuration to real estate developments is characterized by presenting a portal as a dividing plane between the interior and exterior, beyond a scenographic object, the project’s response proposes an open and public space. The space distributes the circulation and accesses to different stages and uses of the complex. The internal communication roads for low impact vehicles are designed from this square to the new development.
Access and circulation through Chable Resort contemplates two design stages: 1. Design of internal roads. 2. Design of the access threshold.
The experience proposes to discover landscapes of endemic vegetation when surrounding mounds and slopes, alternated with strips of henequen that give character to the place. The location of the new development around an old hacienda is bordered by means of common use among residents, therefore, for the design of access to the whole, a public space is proposed, an enclosed courtyard that is given to the village as a value for the community between visitors and residents.
The strong structural rhythms that define the space, besides providing a friendly scale to it, allow the visual permeability from the adjacent pathways, alternating traditional constructive techniques like the flattening of putty with chukum tree resin or the regional stone with steel structural elements that frame the accesses.
