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.

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.

VANIAN GREEN VILLAGE: PRESENTATION OF THE SHOW FLAT (V)

The presentation of the show flat of Vanian Green Village has recently taken place with the attendance of the Mayor of Estepona, as well as personalities from the real estate and tourism world who did not want to miss this important event.

As we already told you in autumn, when we showed this project designed by González & Jacobson Architects in Estepona and promoted by AEDAS Homes, this was the first phase of the residential project to be developed on a 45,000 m2 plot under Mediterranean Village typology, with low-rise staggered buildings.

The first phase, with 6 blocks and 72 apartments, is under construction and today you can see some images of the presentation of the show flat, a harmonious, warm, full of light and very modern house.

We encourage you to get to know this development.

DESIGN IDEAS COMPETITION FOR A RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT IN MIJAS (V)

Last day dedicated to this Ideas Competition in which we show you the final image of the Set proposed by the design team of Gonzalez & Jacobson Architecture.

We especially like the night image, with a careful lighting, which highlights the game between the glazed volumes, and the closures of terraces with lattices in horizontal frame, which are framed, and at the same time coordinate with the pergolas.

And, as we told you in our last post, the more closed access facades have continuous cladding in contrast to the stone cladding reserved for the volumes of the communication cores, all in a range of grays and whites in keeping trends.

DESIGN IDEAS COMPETITION FOR A RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT IN MIJAS (IV)

Turn today for the layouts proposed by Gonzalez & Jacobson Architecture in the Competition for Residential Development in Mijas, on a plot of 20,000 m2 and overlooking the Mountains of Mija and the Bay of Fuengirola.

The facades facing the gardens are much more open, with large openings and terraces enclosed by glazed parapets to optimize views and sunlight. On the other hand, the access and side facades are planned to be more compact, with continuous cladding and, occasionally, cladding panels to cover the volumes destined to communication cores, all in light tones, playing on the range of grays and whites according to current trends. The complex is completed with wooden pergolas, perfect for filtering the light in summer.
