The project

Our approach to the project emphasized collective living and sustainable building practices. We divided the zones around the lake for tourist, health and wellbeing, and regional business development purposes. As we developed our master plan, we balanced our aesthetic vision for the lake with a recreation strategy linked to the region’s natural assets.
