The project of the architecture and engineering company aims to achieve singular buildings of conceptual quality, endowed with a strong contemporary image. In addition, it prioritizes eco-sustainable development in both design and constructive solutions
BOD Arquitectura e Ingeniería has won the contest called by the company Cuatro Suertes Golf Hole S.L. for the real estate development of the sector called URP-10, located in the area of ”El Puerto”, in Torrox (Málaga), a land located in front of the sea with an area of more than 10,000 square meters.
BOD will be in charge of developing the first pilot development, consisting of 78 homes, which will be the aesthetic and management basis for the rest of the sector, which will reach 1,000 homes.
The objective that has been proposed by the promoter company for the development of the sector is to achieve singular buildings of conceptual quality, endowed with a strong contemporary image. In addition, it aims to prioritize eco-sustainable development in both design and constructive solutions.
The solution proposed by BOD aims to achieve the greatest number of homes with sea views. To do this, after carrying out a detailed analysis of the needs program and the constraints imposed by local regulations, it proposes a set of blocks of two types (through block and semi-buried block) connected by an Interior Street on two levels, which includes parking and access to common areas and green spaces.
This Interior Street works as a “backbone” of the project, which structures the accesses to all the blocks. In this way, as the access and circulation spaces have been freed, most of the free surface is used for common and recreational areas of the urbanization, creating a space as a “balcony to the sea”.
The blocks adapt to the changing conditions of the plot, both at the level of curvature and the slope of the terrain. On the west side of the plot, overlooking the sea and steeper slope, the blocks deplete the 3 heights that has been considered as maximum to reduce the visual impact of the whole. While on the East side of the plot, without sea views (or with side views of the sea) and with a less steep slope, the blocks have 2 heights.
In the exterior facade, the terraces are used as a characteristic element that is formed with broken planes that seek the orientation that provides the best views of the sea, and providing the set with a characteristic image.
