mandarina, a sustainable development in mexico

Jul 24, 2018 PRISM

Mandarina, a sustainable development, is the most significant new resort and residential community to grace the shores of Mexico in decades and is being masterfully built with the land in mind. Just under one-hour north of Puerto Vallarta, Mandarina will feature one of the world’s first collections of One&Only branded residences.

 

The force behind Mandarina is publicly listed RLH Properties and developer partner RSC, who have decades of experience and impressive portfolio of developments in Mexico and the Caribbean. Knowing how special the land here is, RLH and RSC have set out to create a destination that is at once, respectful of the past and mindful of the future, and one that honors the landscape, preserves its stunning beauty and storied history. Through careful, low-density land planning, Mandarina will preserve the topography and nurture the native flora, wildlife and ecosystems that thrive here.

 

At Mandarina, the design stems from a detailed site analysis, investigating the geology, climate, views, and the availability of local materials, to name a few of the elements that go in to building climate responsive architecture. To understand how the site influenced previous lifestyles, the team looked at how people have lived in this area over time.

 

The result is architecture that is at one with the site and its heritage and contemporary architecture that harmonizes eloquently with the landscape. The One&Only Private Homes at Mandarina will feature villas offering innovative, contemporary architecture that harmonizes eloquently with the landscape. Each villa is architecturally unique and envisioned specifically for its location along the southern peak to capture the most favorable ocean views.

 

As a result of the team’s sustainable efforts, the long and storied history of the land, which encompasses soaring mountain peaks, sandy shores, rolling green flatlands and a lush, tropical jungle, will be ever present and preserved at Mandarina. Each evening as the sun sets, a fire will light at the end of The Jetty, which stretches out across the blue ocean, symbolizing the center of a long-dormant volcano that created this dramatic landscape many years ago.
