Cadiz

This social housing plan of Cadiz is organized into two rows parallel to the water, each consisting of three housing blocks. In the tradition of the Western Garden Cities the blocks are repeated in rows which are broad and low. The houses are mirrored with private gardens on top of an indoor parking space.Family houses facing the water form the base of the blocks which are made taller and more slender thus giving each house a view to the water. Apartments with a roof terrace form the top stories of these blocks. Between these slender blocks, public space with a relation to the water is created for inhabitants and pedestrians. The site forms a connection between two neighbouring parks. Therefore the park continues into the pedestrian public area between the housing blocks. The transition from public to private is solved for each specific situation.
