Situated in a large residential area by the beach, this complex comprises 68 holiday homes.
The project is based on two fundamental objectives: to provide both comfort and privacy for each of the dwellings, and to find a configuration embracing the houses in larger units for the entire complex. The result is two very compact and approximately square-shaped groups of houses, each slightly
shifted in relation to one another.
Regardless of their different programs, each house is set within an identical 16 x 13.5 metre plot and is based on an L-shaped floor plan to ensure the best orientation and to generate a private courtyard or garden onto which all the rooms open. As a result, each house has its own specific space, thereby achieving both privacy as well as a shelter from the strong winds of the area.
