Nerja Apartments The project is a high density neighborhood development in an empty area in the heart of Nerja. Located in southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, Nerja has a population of 20,000 inhabitants that triples in the summertime. Besides being a resort location in the summer, this small town provides access to a diverse variety of uses for its inhabitants. With high density and walkable streets, the town can be considered very sustainable. The project fills in a gap in the city using the same parameters of the existing surroundings: narrow streets, density and diversity of typologies. It introduces an open and wide public space to provide a decompressed area in the street network. This plaza will include various uses for new residents and existing residents in the surrounding areas. It creates a buffer with existing buildings to guarantee their access to ventilation and sun. The project also introduces passive strategies for efficient use of energy and energy production as well as water management on site.
