Inspired from Mayan culture, Zaha Hadid has unveiled a plush of luxury residential apartments for Maxico. Its an effort to minimize the disturbance to local wildlife with a system of raised platform and walkways. It has been named as Alai which has been planned for Maxico’s Mayan Riviera a booking tourist attraction district in the country’s Yucatan Peninsula.
There are less details available at the early stage however the Alai will include a cluster of residential building containing luxury apartments.
“Echoing the rich textures and surface complexity within the local Mayan masonry and architectural tradition derived from the repetition and variation of a small number of geometric components, the differing texture and patterning of each building’s facade within Alai is generated by assembling the balcony units and facade elements in varying sequences,” says the firm in a press release.
“This enables elements of relatively few different designs to create a unique facade for each building, yet maintains a cohesive design language throughout. These textured facade and balcony units provide solar shading to the apartments within.”
Its a combined project with extensive replanting and restoration program by landscape architects Gross Max with an onsite botanical nursery. In order to enable the residents to stroll through the woodland and around the area, a network of suspended footpath will be installed further wetland will be restored and woodland will be created.
We don’t have any about completion date of the project, however permission has been granted to Zaha Hadid.
