Distant views towards this natural park with mesmerizing light pink hue of the salt lagoon, a recently constructed urbanization in which there are no neighboring buildings yet, striking topography and a complete triangular block form the context in which Balzar Arquitectos and Julia Alcocer have designed the Mirasal residential complex.
The project resolves the placement on the lot by conforming to its perimeter, creating a large interior garden. The building seeks to harmonize with the topography, mimicking the levels of the natural terrain. It is architecture which aims to express itself as a whole, whose plasticity is a result of its horizontal proportions and white materials.
The building is currently under construction, with an estimated end date for the first phase of construction in early 2019. Recently, two show homes have been finished and equipped in order to commercialize the complex.
A Valencian family studio bringing together two generations: José María, with more than 30 years in the profession, along with his son, Txema, who wanted to be an architect from age 6, and his wife, Laura, who brings a more natural vision, having grown up in a rustic mountain village.
Their architecture is human, meant to be lived in, and humanized, adapted to each person. They design the spaces and equip the homes according to the finished designs, including the client in the process and ensuring a satisfactory final result.
Their vision is honest, family-oriented and responsible. They know what they want to contribute to the lives of their clients and to the economic, environmental and social climate. Every project today is a legacy for tomorrow.
