SUSTAINABILITY AT ALMA

As much as ALMA is about creating beautiful spaces, it is also about being good stewards of the land that hosts it.

All our signature properties incorporate state-of-the-art solutions to make them not only the most pleasant of places but also the most environmentally respectful and climate responsive.

SUSTAINABILITY FROM THE VERY DESGIN

Adapted to your needs AND the climate.

Through a series of initiatives and commitments, ALMA aims at promoting a respectful and sustainable development.

THE ESSENCE OF HUATULCO 

ALMA is nestled in an area of Huatulco that reflects its very essence: abundant nature. 

On the west side of the city, the "Camino Escénico", ALMA’s neighborhood, will become the first area dedicated to architecture and nature.

An unprecedented experience on the coast of Oaxaca awaits.

RESPECT OF THE TOPOGRAPHY

While seemingly secluded, ALMA is located just minutes from La Crucecita, and 20 minutes from an international airport.

 

The community will be developed on a 3.6 ha (9 ac) south facing lot, made of two small hills with slopes gently going all the way down to the ocean, guaranteeing a variety of sea views from the properties.

 

Positioned at the doorstep of the National Park, surrounded by three gorgeous beaches, miles of biking lanes, and close to world-class amenities, you are guaranteed to return home filled with peace every time you step out.

RESPECT OF THE NATIVE SPECIES

ALMA is located in an area that will be developed with the same vision in mind: low-density, care for the landscape, and climate-responsive design.

In other words, the environment, neighborhood, density, views, architectural type, and presence of nature will be carefully controlled and preserved, thereby avoiding any unwelcome surprises.

CONVERSATIONS WITH THE LOCAL COMMUNITIES

Jose Juan Rivera Rio, co-architect of ALMA

“One of the most important aspects I consider when designing, is to respect what happens around. I like to analyze and listen to the place, the context and the moment; I believe that architecture speaks for itself, it can be felt, seen and touched”.

REFORESTATION
BETWEEN THE INDOORS AND OUTDOORS 

The residence unobtrusively combines Mexican architecture with the raw beauty of the Pacific coastline. Pure lines impart a sense of weightlessness to the design, enhanced by floor to ceiling sliders that blur the boundary between the indoors and outdoors while preserving comfort.

Architecture is not material, it is an experience.

AIMING AT CERTIFICATION

We firmly believe that architecture has to honor nature rather than reshape it. Our approach reflects a deep respect for the environment,

focusing on low-density sustainable development.

In other words, as much as ALMA is about creating beautiful spaces, it is also about being good stewards of the land that hosts it.
