We are delighted that the housing development project we designed, Toro dels Calders, for an area just outside the beautiful fishing village of Cadaques in Catalunya is under construction. We designed the layout to respect the existing landscape so that the footpaths, roads and greenspaces would integrate completely with the existing olive terraces of the site. Now that the infrastructure and urbanisation is underway the sites are available to purchase for each owner to have their own architecturally designed house. The sites are located between the beautiful fishing villages of Cadaques and Port Lligat, made famous because of the summer residence of the internationally renowned surrealist painter, Salvador Dali. Figueres, the local market town, is also made famous by a museum that Dali designed and curated.
Some of the sites have amazing views to Cap de Creus and all are located among olive trees and natural stone terraces.
We, as architects, are working on proposals for houses to follow the latest though in sustainable design in keeping with the strategy for the overall development. Houses that follow passive house standard and therefore have no requirement for central heating system.
