ISLA PEDRO GONZALEZ
Archipelago Las Perlas, Panama
Known for its untouched coastline, and gentle, sloping vegetation, the island has twelve undeveloped beaches, fifteen square kilometers of forest and one existing fishing village home to about 400 residents. In order to both preserve the existing landscape and offer a compact, sustainable development pattern to the Panama region, the Isla Pedra Gonzalez master plan clusters new development within seven intimate, walkable villages connected by a network of trails and green spaces. This development approach maintains the natural beauty of the island while creating memorable, community-oriented neighborhoods featuring a range of retail, office and housing offerings.
