ermita san antonio

de la tuna

The project consists of new recreational facilities that will serve the visitors of the ruins of a historic religious structure(The Ermitas - San Antonio de la Tuna). The Municipality of Isabela decided to develop these recreational facilities in a nearby empty site to provide the visitors with a formal parking lot, bathrooms, a cafeteria and a small public plaza. From it's conceptualization, the facilities were concieved as an "environmentally sensible" project that could take advantage of it's exposure as a site of tourist interest to educate it's visitors on the importance of sustainable building strategies. The project seeks to obtain LEED Certification under the New Construction & Major Renovation Rating System.
