Park City   Majadahonda, Madrid -Spain
Located 20 kilometers far from Madrid downtown…
…next by a high traffic highway…
…we are commissioned to develop a low density housing project, on a 9.5 hectares lot…
…typically, projects of the area divide their lots in blocks of 130 by 80 meters, building and strictly on the block borders…
…they leave the interior of the block as green areas… anyhow these areas are kept as private areas…
How can we achieve -with a low density project- to cover a city portion, without breaking up the existing urban tissue?
How can we accomplish that green areas where no longer for exclusive private consumption but -further on- of public domain?
How can we lead with a land located in a transition situation, between existing built city and high traffic highways?
Park City is set with a grid that covers the 100% of 9.5 hectares the land…
…this grid defines each house portion of land…
…a subterranean infrastructure system. allows not only private access to the houses…
…but also, allows to endow houses -in an efficient way- with light, water, sewer and trash gather systems…
…this subterranean infrastructure system, liberates the whole land area from cars circulation…
…low density houses area located –randomly- as pixels on the land…
Park City located in the boundaries, between existing city blocks and high traffic highways…
…deal with this problem, by creating a public green area
…then public green patches that connects the existing city with the, public green area…
…then public green patches are linked by a interior ring way
…facilities areas are defined…
…finally when superposing…
…every layer…
Park City is revealed…
Park City offers part of it areas to public domain consumption…
…allowing the City with a more permeable urban tissue.
Park City is a city portion that –literally- cannot be built without housing areas and also housing areas that – literally- cannot exist without the city.
