14 Official Proteccion Housing in Ibiza, Spain by Castell-Pons Arquitectes

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

Article source: Castell-Pons Arquitectes

The project combines the preexistences and the urban development conditions, to interact with the users’ way of life. 

City. Interaction architecture – surroundings. 

On the one hand, we try to give a response to the complex surroundings by raising a building with an own geometry. A volume with different heights that takes the most advantage of solar orientation and ventilation where the game between emptinesses, hollows and interior court gets the maximum use of the space.
