The Practice


proyectos / Masterplan / P.E.T.O.T. SAMANA


The PETOT (Urban and Territory Strategic Plan) is a planning tool designed to transform 222sqkm of land located in the north of Samaná Peninsula into a new urban landmark with its own character and identity. The main goal is to turn this area into a landmark recognizable both in a national framework as a place-to-gather, and in an international one as a new destination. 

On PHASE 1, the strategy was defined by stablishing the following guidelines:
1. Connectivity: making Samaná a connected area, where pedestrians play a main role together with public realm.
2. Diversity: Samaná Peninsula aims to be a diverse territory where coastal tourism is combined with mountain and landscape tourist attractions
3. Mancommunity: Samaná will be dotted with a complete-multifunctional equipment´s system. 

As a next step, and taking into account different scales, PHASE 2 settles down a proposal that contains a territory and tourism model based on the protection and enhancement of landscape and natural resources. This phase establishes a sustainable transport and mobility network that improves global accessibility to the area while points out the preferred location of both local and general equipments and facilities that aim to enrich the quality of life of both residents and visitors.
