People no longer perceive their city as a just short commute. Growing closeness between nature and the city has become a value as citizens seek to have a healthier and balanced lifestyle. Due to the fact that many entertainments remained closed for a long time all around the world, people were socializing at terraces and balconies at their homes. As a result, this has led some architects in collaboration with agencies to make the decision on developing new projects on re-wilding and reimagining cities to incorporate nature. This is how the “Aquarela” residential complex in Ecuador was born. The main architect's idea is to bring nature into the place where you live and surround you with natural materials. With a bit of details, the residence buildings consists of series of planted terraces and the carcass meant to echo the topography of nearby mountains. One should highlight the fact that the project is taking the environmentally friendly approach, it has energy efficient design to mitigate its carbon footprint; the light and shading are being with a focus on natural; energy efficient heat pump heating and cooling systems are being installed.
