clip Residential at Novo Sancti Petri

  • Project Name: Residential at Novo Sancti Petri
  • Construction year: 1991
  • Architect(s): Cruz y Ortiz
  • Project Category:
  • Address: Av. Octavio Augusto, 3, 11130 Chiclana de la Frontera, CÁDIZ, Spain
  • Latitude: 36.35659
  • Longitude: -6.15995

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.
