The master plan vision for Convida Suape, a new city in North Eastern Brazil, designed by global architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan. Convida Suape is a sustainable urban extension of the city of Cabo de Santo Agostinho near Recife, the capital city of the State of Pernambuco, and will result in the transformation of a 470 hectare area to accommodate up to 100,000 inhabitants.
It promotes a compact urban model for walkability and sustainable access to learning, healthcare and employment. It features green buildings and new building typologies with integrated utility provision, will enhance the natural landscape and river corridors, and includes a substantial on-going habitat-restoration programme.
The city will be built in four phases with ten distinct neighbourhoods providing 25,000 new homes set in 154 hectares of open space, as well as substantial provision for new businesses, health, education and leisure activities.
The masterplan was created bt the practice’s team of masterplanners, urban designers, architects, landscape architects and branding specialists based in its São Paulo, Lisbon and London offices. Practice Director Margarida Caldeira said: “Convida Suape will set a benchmark for strategic urban development and city expansion projects in North Eastern Brazil, now one of the fastest growth areas in the world. The launch is testament to the integrated work of our world-class team of design experts delivering on our client’s ambitions in partnership with its stakeholders.”
