Floor Plan 1

Text description provided by the architects. The Pulté is a residential urbanization complex located over a forested mountain at the edge of the city, whose design corresponds to the topography of the land and seeks to recreate a countryside environment, through buildings that follow a contemporary line.

The project includes the urbanization plan, streets and lots, the design of the club house, stables and trails for horseback riding. The buildings are characterized by having a regular geometry that integrates into the environment.

The club house is a sample of this, with clear horizontal forms accompanied by clean details in wood and glass enclosures. In the second level, a cantilevered concrete perimeter runs along three of the facades, providing solar protection while creating a clear circulation around the plan.

The plan consists of different social areas wich include a restaurant, swimming pool, gym, squash courts and spa located on two floors around a double-height lobby with connecting corridors, as well as an annex space that contains survice areas that supply the main building.
