The complex offers luxury community spaces integrated into nature such as jungle gardens, magical outdoor living spaces-villas, multipurpose pavilion, indoor community spaces, leisure areas, restaurant, and a panoramic Nest with unrestricted and breath-taking views. All to achieve a wide vocabulary of visual elements to mutate into designing language, in materials and shapes, for a bio-mimicry architecture.

DNA´s objective was to achieve the balance between mind-body-soul providing a true escape from everyday life, allowing maximum disconnection and relaxation and that´s why spa-wellness, saunas, and community swimming pools were carefully developed and became an important part of this project. The idea was to create “Cenotes”- natural freshwater ponds, to which the Mayans gave a sacred use, thus allowing to experience the real Mayan´s rituals.

DNA makes an emphasis on sustainability concept respecting ecosystem and biodiversity, contributing to the usage of natural materials that minimizes the impact of building and generation of waste. The water collection concept is also respected and represents a recovery of rainwater for sewage treatment. The solar panels are implemented to achieve sustainable electricity. Finally, the “dry” construction system is used, meaning no wet binders, shorter execution time, and increased safety and sustainability.
