About the Design

Jean Nouvel
Jean Nouvel

Architect

Ateliers Jean Nouvel

View Profile

Located in the valley neighborhood of Cumbaya, Aquarela’s master plan responds organically to the project’s surrounding context, generating green spaces and terraces throughout. All of Aquarela’s apartments have a visual relationship to their surroundings: both the lush landscaping of the project, and the view of the valleys of Tumbaco.

The stone exteriors of Aquarela create a facade that responds to the physical space where it is situated, and these exteriors are covered with native plants from the region. Aquarela is meant to appear as a monolith, in order to become part of the topography of the Cumbayá valley, and to organically create harmony between the building and the physical features of the valley rather than disrupt its contours.

The project follows an eco-efficiency matrix which dictates the conscious use of materials, construction systems, and technical design, which are developed to generate the least possible impact when it comes to the use of non renewable resources (electrical energy saving, use of potable water, collecting and reusing rainwater, water treatment, irrigation systems, etc), demonstrating commitment to environmental responsibility.
