A new arrangement of green spaces is proposed, with a large coastal green reservoir that allows recovering the beach dunes. A vertical green corridor is proposed allowing the ecological connection between dunes and the litoral pine groves of the area’s interior. To accomplish this generous green area, we proposed the reduction of private land and development potential compared to the withstanding 1990 plan.
We propose to maintain the existing road network as much as possible, removing some of them without creating new ones. This will preserve the existing pine grove as much as possible and will diminish energy consumption and demolition during the construction phase. We also propose to demolish the buildings within the coastal fringe to preserve and foster the recovery of the whole dune system. The facilities proposed are organized around the new green areas, creating a continuous park and facility system. Furthermore, private land is grouped as a continuum with the already established urban development, avoiding the fragmentation of private land.
Buildings without basements are proposed for the private plots. Structures elevated on stilts leave the site’s topography untouched with a minimum footprint on the land. The proposed building arrangement with south-facing buildings and generous distance between them ensures proper sunlight and ventilation for future dwellings, providing thermal comfort and decreasing housing energy requirements during their useful life.
