public spaces in Cap Roig

Olive tree fields divided by meters wide stone walls extend on a small plateau down to the limit of the red cliff that falls vertically to the sea. Towards East and West, on either side of that flat area, a series of terraces, outlined by their dry stone walls, descent in a dry torrent bed, which’s mouth created a creek and small sand beach.
In this exceptional landscape, on top of the flat plateau that dominates the sea, was planned a housing estate. Once the street planning was defined, the landscape designers have been entrusted with the treatment of the public spaces and green areas: the sides of the two torrents and the olive tree terraces at the edges of the cliffs. They were also in charge of the design of the square that occupies the centre of the future urban area.
