Europan VII International Competition in Montijo

runner up awarded

Montijo’s coastline gets lost in the ambiguity between land and sea. To assign a clear identity to the frontier, we wanted to trim that anonymous boundary and frame it into view. The result was two facades: city and ocean, welcome and farewell.
The project demarcates the frontier in respect to the materialization of the terrestrial and the marine. The housing complex is placed in the city’s limit, as a backdrop for the sea; while frames are set overlooking the ocean, delineating the horizon as a painting to be cherished from the living rooms of the apartments.
