House Prototype R and K

Formation of an urban texture that tries to understand and to reinterprete the familiar local structures.

The planning site lies in a region that was previously exclusively agricultural, namely the nature conservancy area of the Ebro Delta, lying 150 kilometers south of Barcelona. As a consequence of intensive infrastructural development in the region in recent years (three international airports within a circumference of 150 kilometers, and a fully completed motorway and high-speed rail network), it is now possible to live in this sparsely populated area and work at the same time on one of the cities around.
