VERGELES DEL MAR IN ALMERIA
The land on which we operate has an area of 3430 M².
The total constructed area is of 9290 M² above ground and 2,200 M² in basements for parking and storage.
The building comprising has a total of 99 apartments spread over an block shaped area with central courtyard and a green and pool area and in the southern zone of the plot which integrates the building.
The desire to achieve integration of nature and architecture is a concept taken to its limits by the organisms. In Vergeles del Mar nature breaks through the middle of the basements building and shares its intimacy with the privacy of its owners. The climatic advantages of the project, the benefits of gaining common areas and the belief of living in a privileged and unique place, are confirmed by the spectacle of the deck, the imposing façade and quality in design.
SYNOPSIS PROJECT BY THE ARCHITECTS IN ALMERIA:
We are facing a very unique project of collective housing in Almeria. The Almeria Architects have designed a building shaped like a cube that is pierced from side to side by a green area. Around this gesture turns the entire project. In the interior of the cube, they have created a garden with different types of vegetation which play with the boundaries of the public and private.
An indoor garden through were part of the housing can breathe as well as the vertical communication cores. In the final part of this green area, already in the outside part, is placed the community pool. In the outer faces of this perforated prism, architects have proposed facades with a modulated form in its entire extension, aligning all windows and joints with the coating material. It’s a façade that shows simple and further emphasizes the idea of a cube residential complex.
At the corners of the cube, edges in this case , some balconies are positioned with glass railing that appear as singular elements , as they are the only parts that protrude from the plane of the façade. All housing blocks are topped with a glass balustrade along the entire perimeter of the upper terrace. In contrast with these prismatic shapes, designers have proposed a slightly concave curve deck supported on a cover glass.
All these original solutions, at the time we face the compact image of group dwellings, bringing greenery into the block among others, are the result of the experience of these architects on the Costa del Sol, especially in Almeria.
