Culebra, PR (2022)
One hundred seven acres of the undeveloped site on the Island of Culebra is planned to avoid a negative impact on the land. Bay Site Design nestles buildings within the existing landscape with an absolute minimal impact. Contiguous open space allows a restoration program to flourish with the introduction of a canopy of hardwoods.
Two paradors and an eco-camp set the tone for the community. Sixty-five rooms distributed between two co-managed hospitality units and a managed rental pool of 82 dwellings, help maintain a year-round occupancy for Culebra’s economy.
The overall sustainable approach to design and careful attention to the economic and social requirements of the island help make this project a model for development on this unique island.
