This retirement complex is designed in a way that each area is part of a much larger system. Natural elements such as hills and water streams help define limits and connect the different zones of this large development, as well as man-made elements such as pathways, sidewalks and roads. Gardens, ponds and terraces prove to be the middle point between nature and development, connecting the private and public spaces in different scales.
Apart from the retirement community, a series of ambulatory homes are included in the proposal. These are located near the hospital and surrounded by their own private gardens, ponds and pathways. The colour palette of the greenery is more intense and provides a greater stimulation to the eye
This farming area guarantees not only the productive use of land but also the limitation of further development in the future. Its location reinforces the role of the river in this particular area. It’s connected to the retirement complex by a gateway and several smaller bridges.
