Programming / Visioning
This plan was commissioned by a non profit developer to redevelop an existing slum where residents lived in run down huts and trailers. The vision for this redevelopment plan is inspired by courtyard blocks of traditional neighbourhoods across Central America and Mexico with a predominant Spanish eclectic architectural style.
The Plan places primary importance on the design for a safe and functional pedestrian public realm where each block has its own playground open space. A functional "Hacienda" inspired mixed use centre anchored by a church forms the heart of the Village.
