Year:

Area:

925,696 sq ft.

Status:

Project

 

This development is located in Puerto Peñasco, internationally known as Rocky Point, due to its proximity to the United States; it has urban services as well as ground and air transport infrastructure to make it easily accessible.

Puerto Peñasco has particular climatic conditions that attract Mexican and foreign tourists.

The project has a contemporary design, with a composition of elements communicating a deep sense of harmony, giving visitors and users a feeling of physical and spiritual calm.

Alaqua has two volumes, one of them with columns in order to alter the rhythm, and combined with the infinity pools, the project visually enfolds the marina and masts of the boats seen on the horizon. A series of frames around both buildings gives the appearance of a fish’s skeleton.

A shopping mall on the ground floor is joined to the shopping area of the small tower across an exterior plaza. Both plazas connect to the jetty, creating a pleasant urban environment for the visitor. The mall has restaurants, boutiques, fast food restaurants, bathrooms, visitor elevators, resident elevators and a separate elevator for the spa to ensure secure access to each space of the condo-hotel.
