Competition - PAU 1, Alicante

Competition - PAU 1, Alicante

Client: Acciona Inmobiliaria
Location: Alicante, España (Spain)
Size: 18.000 m2

The proposal for this competition is based on three principles set out by the Planning Authorities: internal open-air courtyard, an opening towards the park and optimum use of sun.

We proceeded to coil the building block to follow a spiral form inclining the building profile to minimise heights on the south facing side allowing sun penetration into the courtyard.  The main elevation facing the park is raised to create a powerful visual focus and allows pedestrian routes linking the internal courtyard with surrounding streets.
