The Ambler | Isla Palenque Wins ASLA Award for Sustainable Development | Amble Resorts

"We're especially proud of this award because it was a particularly competitive year to win," says Richard Shaw, FASLA, a Principal and Partner at Design Workshop. But for Shaw, it's been clear from the start that Isla Palenque is exceptional. "Amble's concept is special to begin with," says Shaw. "The idea behind the master plan has always been to retain natural resources while accommodating low-density development; synthesizing aspects of sustainability, conservation, and ecotourism for a result that will really create unprecedented character."

For Design Workshop, Isla Palenque provides an opportunity to showcase design that is at the core of their environmentally focused mission. The design makes intelligent use of the terrain and lavishes attention on the beauty of the island itself. Says Shaw, "The placement of the buildings is thoughtful, putting most of the buildings in the few areas that were previously cleared for farming, allowing the sensitive ecosystems and cultural material to be preserved."
