IDEAS COMPETITION FOR A RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT ON THE COSTA DEL SOL

The houses, in semi-detached or detached typology and two floors above ground level, are immersed in the landscape, with which they are integrated, through the use of natural materials such as stone, or landscaped roofs. In this way, the visual impact is minimal, while improving interior insulation conditions and reducing energy consumption.

The proposed housing typologies adapts to the diverse needs of the users, offering the possibility of evolving, all this through the design of open spaces on the daytime floors, or with movable partitions that allow compartmentalization if necessary.

Likewise, the G&J team has made every effort to resolve the location, so that practically all the units enjoy sea views from some of their rooms.

PRELIMINARY PROJECT FOR 11 TOWNHOUSES IN NUEVA ANDALUCIA (VIII)

The master bedroom and its bathroom are elements that take on special relevance in this project and for this reason the choice of materials has been especially taken care of: for the bathroom, a large marble canvas has been designed as a backdrop to the sink area who is the real protagonist. The colored glass wall offers a blurred view of your interior from the bedroom.

In this one, wood and glass combine to create an elegant and very sophisticated environment, with indirect lighting that provides the necessary intimate touch.

PROJECT FOR 11 TOWNHOUSES IN NUEVA ANDALUCIA (VII)

The interior layout of these homes is very open in the day area. A single space is created that brings together living, kitchen and dining room, with the latter as a link between the former, without giving up their independence. In addition, the space is extended to the outside through the large glazed openings, whose carpentries are planned following the chromatic range chosen for the whole and with floor-to-ceiling dimensions.

In addition, the staircase area is visually integrated through the insertion of a colored glass panel. The metal staircase, as a sculptural piece, together with the details of wood finishes, the wine cellar and lighting, provide an elegant and slow-life touch.

PRELIMINARY PROJECT FOR 11 TOWNHOUSES IN NUEVA ANDALUCÍA (VI)

In early April we share the draft of these 11 luxury villas in the Golf Valley, in Nueva Andalucía, Marbella, on a plot of 9,900 m2.

Since then, the González & Jacobson team has continued to advance in the design and today we begin to show you the first exterior images, with a contemporary style and a harmonious aesthetic, where the play of volumes is combined with the inclined planes that anchor the homes to its environment.

We remind you that these are high-quality homes, where authentic luxury is found in its exquisite design, and the elegance of its materials. We will share more very soon.

DESIGN IDEAS COMPETITION IN RIVIERA DEL SOL, MIJAS (IV)

The creative process of the overall image starts from the horizontality that mark the slabs, in white, moving planes, undulating, which are topped with glazed parapets to improve the views, and in which the wooden inserts in pergolas and vertical planes provide a groundbreaking note and an elegant and natural touch.

Landscaping is fundamental in our proposals, the exterior design is part of the overall idea and buildings cannot be understood without their surroundings. In this case, we have paid special attention to the interior space of the “U” block, halfway between garden and courtyard.  Therefore with a different character from the rest, the proposed textures ,materials and species play an important role.

DESIGN IDEAS COMPETITION IN RIVIERA DEL SOL, MIJAS (III)

González & Jacobson Architecture proposes for this competition 6 blocks totaling 159 dwellings. Given that the user profile at which they are focused is both first and second residence, a higher percentage of 3-bedroom apartments has been chosen, up to 65% of the total, and the remaining 35% of 2-bedroom apartments. Not surprisingly, this is an area quite consolidated by buildings, which in its beginnings was a summer resort area but in recent years has come to have a significant occupancy throughout the year, thanks to its proximity to the highway, the excellent location just minutes from shopping centers and Fuengirola, as well as the existence of facilities and services nearby.

In the housing prototypes that we show you, you can appreciate the distribution of the day areas, with kitchens integrated with the living rooms, creating much larger spaces. The bedrooms are mostly open to the main facades, much more open, and all of them have closets. The master bedrooms have walk-in closets and en-suite bathrooms.

DESIGN IDEAS COMPETITION IN RIVIERA DEL SOL, MIJAS (II)

González & Jacobson Architecture proposal for this competition is developed in three phases, with 6 buildings of different sizes. Each of the phases has its own pool area and gardens, as well as road access.

The first phase has a higher building density, due to the better orographic conditions of the terrain.

The second phase frees up a wide strip of land between the buildings, where the existing watercourse and depression of the land is used to create a large garden area.

For the last phase, in the central and higher area of the plot, we have proposed a “U” shaped building with an interesting design of the central space and the main facades, more accentuated here but repeated in the rest of the buildings of the complex, as a sign of identity.

The sections show the unevenness of the terrain, to which the different blocks are adapted, and in which the pieces that our team has proposed as multipurpose rooms for the community are inserted.

DESIGN IDEAS COMPETITION IN RIVIERA DEL SOL, MIJAS (I)

New occasion for the González & Jacobson design team to develop all our creativity. This time it is a plot with irregular shape and quite a slope, but with a magnificent orientation that has allowed us to place the different residential buildings optimizing the views and sunlight.

Today we advance the first sketches, germ of what we will show you in the coming days, because the freehand drawing is still essential to shape our ideas.

PRELIMINARY DRAFT FOR 14 VILLAS IN BENAHAVÍS (IV)

Following a current design line, González & Jacobson Arquitectura proposes a contemporary image for these villas in Benahavís, with flat roofs, volumes with continuous exterior cladding and some panels clad with natural stone. The flooring is provided in a large format for the noble areas, being repeated outside on porches with a non-slip finish, as an extension of the rooms.

These villas are aimed at a medium-to-high level profile, which seeks first-class qualities and finishes, and, above all, comfortable homes. For this reason, the villas will have air conditioning and underfloor heating, as well as pre-installation of home automation, so that life in them is very, very comfortable, because, after all, the real luxury is enjoying our quality time.

PRELIMINARY PROJECT FOR 14 VILLAS IN BENAHAVIS (III)

We are working on the image of these villas, having already made several proposals. In them, the contemporary style does not flee from the architecture of our area, but proposes a fusion of both, a meeting point between the latest trends and the Mediterranean tradition.

Flat roofs, marked volumes, openings that frame the landscape, large porches and glass walls that allow the sun to enter… because architecture, design, is not impersonal, but adapts to each site and is part of it.
