Description Change this

Costa Blanca Green Paradise was built in Campoamor in a landscape of pine trees and scrublands as a new holiday center. Dehesa de Campoamor is divided into two broad sectors according to project phasing: La Glea and Diez Picos. The urban model follows principles from Athens Manifest: climate and sun conditions, green areas, density, breaking building in lines setting, high construction with green areas in between buildings. It adapts the system to tourism particularities. For the residential areas, vertical and horizontal urban morphologies are combined, achieving a density that offers environmental quality: Open blocks of 15-storeis in the coastal strip, and Ciudad-Jardín in the back strip near the access road. A sustainable and multiform prototype of summer holiday resort. Public buildings are articulated around the two sectors and are solved with singular architectures: marina, civic center, church, parks and commercial and sports equipment. Especially tourism-related uses: yacht club, hotels, restaurants, clubs and cinema.
