20 Social housing flats for rent in Conil de la Frontera

Vincent Morales Garoffolo y Juan Antonio Sánchez Muñoz

Description Technical file

Repetition, variety, identity and a certain formal and typological audacity set the tone of the project for this group of homes in Conil de la Frontera.
This work is a modest exercise that is resolved through careful use of scale and proportion, fulfilling restrictive Social Housing regulations and strict municipal ordinances on a very limited budget.
The context, a generic landscape on the periphery of Andalucía, reflects the typical and unstructured town planning that followed the construction boom. Faced with this situation, the architects decided to design a housing space with its own personality and the ability to be located in a relationally complex area, among diverse residential typologies, urban uses and determinant topographic and volumetric transitions.
The typology of the housing and its schematic and repetitive aggregation fits into a single centreline with double ventilation, which when grouped together generates two geometrically defined blocks with a structural shape and layout that optimises usage and built floor space. The layout of the ensemble frees up part of the plot for a small public space, another one in a series of intermediate spaces established as potential collective meeting places.
The typological clarity of the floor plan, together with a creative interpretation of the urban specifications in the applicable General Urban Development Plan, affords the architects flexibility when it comes to composing the final volumes, in an act of landscape adaptation to an environment of distinct formal characteristics.
