With the same subtlety with which a humming bird feeds from nature, TZunun represents a building that takes only what is needed from its environment and fully respects the rest. Three axes sustain our building; Spatial quality, Respect of the surroundings, Low Density.
The building evokes a Mayan pattern using floating balconies that create a rhythm of light and shadows along the main façade. And the subtle touch of the building in the plot represents the elegance of the humming bird.
RESPECT OF THE SURROUNDINGS
A very deep understanding of our surroundings allows to elegantly intertwine our development with the environment. It is with great respect that we treat nature and we have embraced and cope at its best with the essence of the site, the ancient trees as well as the water from the aquifers. It must be mentioned that a Mayan ceremony took place in the plot, since according to the local beliefs we must ask permission to Mother Earth to proceed in our building’s endeavor. Adapting for us does not only mean treating the land in the best way possible but also be aware and take part of the local beliefs and traditions.
These attribute of the building stands for exclusiveness, since the number of apartments is as low as 11, compared to other developments in the area. The low density ensures a high-quality, intimate and elegant experience in our development.
The project is in the privileged Region 15, which projects the uniqueness of Tulum where buildings and jungle should merge in the most respectful way to nature. The dust streets made of regional soil and the lack of streetlights gives this residential area a very special touch, were one can become part of the jungle, listen to its sounds, appreciate the scents and gaze at the stars.
