Ciudadela


Project Brief:

FLA Architect of Record

Mix-Use

Key Architects Héctor Arce Fernando Lugo

Development

Ciudadela is a mix-use development part of a revitalization plan for the center of Santurce. It has an heterogenous urban configuration where the integration of several structures with 500 apartment units, 150,000 square feet of retail space and more than 2,000 parking spaces.

Outlining

Background

This development is located in a 244,685 sq.ft. urban site, which is the product of joining several lots; it is the result of a revitalization plan by the government and the participation of our firm in the corresponding RFP. Resulting block is confined to the north by the Antonsanti St., to the south by the Ponce de León Ave., to the east by the del Parque St., and to the west by the “Stop 22” building. The site is an irregular one with direct access from three streets, which gives permeability to the project allowing an easy way to access and enhancing connectivity with the urban surrounding. Design Features Ciudadela is under construction, and our team is committed from the beginning with the sustainability of the project. Several design strategies have been incorporated in order to reduce energy and water consumption. We have also taken extended care in specifying materials with low VOC (lower level of contaminants), and to enhance community connectivity. These design strategies have been incorporated to the project in order to achieve LEED certification. Open Space Design The design of a Central Plaza that interconnects three streets and promotes community connectivity is the element that stands out. A space without cars, and with arcades and fountains makes it special for social gathering and for the collective memory.

Eugenio María de Hostos High School


Project Brief: Outlining Location The Mayagüez Urban High School once completed became Eugenio María de Hostos High School. It is located at the corner of Nenadich St. and Leon St. in front of the Mayagüez Government Center. It was part of the Puerto Rico Public Building Authority’s joint development plan with the Puerto Rico Education Department for relocating an existing urban High School that was in need of a new structure.

Background An urban site near the Municipal Government Center and with an old and abandoned building becomes the new location for the Eugenio María de Hostos High School. Design Features This project was particularly challenging because it required the design of a high school for 1,000 students with a complex program in a relatively small urban lot. Our solution included every single requirement without compromising design quality or urban relationships. The School creates an urban public space with a bus stop and a small urban plaza preserving the oldest trees at the corner of the site.

Elementary School + Auditorium


Project Brief: Outlining Location As part of the French Ministry of National Education program, there is a network of French Schools established in many foreign countries. This network is one of the most extensive of its kind and its open to the language and culture of the host country. The Lycée Français de Caracas forms part of this network of schools. The school is part of the plan to enable the children of expatriates to follow exactly the same curriculum as they would in France. This project is the renovation of part of the existing school including a new building for the elementary school and the school auditorium and chapel. The “Colegio Francia” was established in Caracas in the 1950s as a very small school and grew throughout the years becoming a renowned institution. The Colegio Francia Foundation together with the French Government coordinated a plan to remodel the existing facilities which included the demolition of several old buildings and the construction of a new structure for the elementary school, the school auditorium, an underground parking and chapel.

Inner Corridors

Design Features The design establishes a Master Plan for the whole school, creates a main public façade with the new building towards the community and expands the reduced lot by using all the roofs for playgrounds.

Project Brief:

FLA Role Architect of Record

Defining Location

Key Architect Fernando Lugo

Villas del Parque Condominium is part of a revitalization plan for the center of Santurce in Puerto Rico. In a triangular site the development restores the city fabric establishing an urban border and recognizing the need for urban sidewalks. It is formed by the combination of two building types, row houses and tower, following the guidelines established in the master plan for the area. Outlining

Background

The proposed development was designed with a program following the Santurce Special Zoning Ordinances. These Ordinances establish a zoning ZU-G2 / ZE-M3 which promote different uses like commercial and small industrial business with residences. Design Features The program is defined by three different constructive modules, two made up of three stories row houses with parking below and one module by a ten stories residential tower. This last element is located at the corner creating a new public open plaza. This new Plaza is at the intersection of the two streets. The first two modules have fifteen residences that are Row Houses with independent entrances directly from each street. The second module has a commercial space in the first floor and fifteen residences at the top. This module together with the Public Plaza was designed as the hierarchical element of the corner.

Outline The Josefina Leon Zayas High School is an existing 64,827.36 square feet school, located at the perimeter of Jayuya’s town center on an 22,661 square meter urban lot. The school’s main entrance, located at the north end of the premises, is accessed from PR 141-R. The school community consists of grades 10 to 12 with an enrollment of 826 students and classroom capacity of 25 students. Background Design decisions are an integral part of the design process and establishing the basis of design is fundamental for achieving the Owner’s Project Requirements, work within the standards and aspire for LEED Certification. This project is a major renovation of an existing school with several new building additions. Up until July 2011 it was the only project within the context of the Schools for the 21st Century Program that entailed an existing school renovation that established the LEED Certification Goal. Design Features The site is planned in such a way that the existing parking area and the vehicular circulation will remain with minimal changes. No additional parking is proposed and a reserved space for carpool drop off will be incorporated as well as 4 spaces (5% of total) reserved for low emitting vehicles. Pedestrian circulation will be enhanced by demolishing several hardscape areas and by the construction of new walkways giving access to new entrances. The new walkways will be built with pervious surfaces.

Main Entrance


Design Features Landscaping is an integral part and an important element of design. A minimum of 50% of the site, excluding the building footprint, will be restored/protected using native or adapted species that require no irrigation. The creation of swales, bioswales and pervious surfaces together with storm water harvesting will limit the disruption of the natural hydrology by preventing the postdevelopment peak discharge rate and quantity from exceeding the pre development peak discharge rate. An outdoor learning experience is being created to promote awareness regarding run offs and the cycle of water. Additional catch basins will be built and new pipes will be installed to drain areas subject to ponding or with deficient drainage. Pipes to be installed shall be perforated and shall be laid on a gravel bed to enhance percolation. All necessary trenches shall be filled and compacted. The affected areas will be restored to their original conditions or improved conditions.

The mural at the entrance of the Community Pavilion will deal with environmental awareness and the marvels that surround us. Using the local flora and fauna as the main figures, it will show the beauty of the environment. The mural at the main entrance of the school will depict the evolution of the human being and the animals using “place, time and space as variables of a metamorphosis”. Finally there will be a third mural next to the water harvesting station that will be performed together with a selected group of students from the high school that will deal with the relevance of “water for life”.

Three murals will be performed in the Josefina Leon Zayas High School. The themes will present nature and living beings depicting the sustainable systems of living. The artists will be using their characteristic media, black china ink over white paint and colorful backgrounds, in order to bring out the main figures.

Aerial View

The “Casa Méndez” exterior renovation became an example on how the substitution of a solid by a void becomes the solution. A single family house in a suburban area had several additions built through the years and a gazebo in the middle of the outside garden area had filtration problems. The idea of demolishing and building the exact opposite in terms of built and un built was immediately accepted by the owner after a quick sketch was made and the concept was understood.
