In a 4 hectares site by the sea, 17 dwellings are created, organized in detached and semidetached volumes oriented towards the sea.
The dwellings have different typologies, able to host various lifestyles, providing views and privacy at the same time.
Big pergolas offer protection from the sun and most of the volumes are clad with local stone, enhancing their bioclimatic performance
while blending in with the landscape. The residential complex respects the traditional architecture, reinterpreting features and materials,
while hosting contemporary households. The large main yard provides a privileged public space to the inhabitants. A smooth paved path
runs across gardens of endemic and succulent species, connecting every different dwelling and leading to the beach.
