The project is developed on two smallholdings located in the Estella del Marqués, one of the towns in the immediate periphery of the main urban center of Jerez. Both plots, part of the Execution Unit “EM. B, Estella del Marqués”, are located south of this unit at the boundary between urban and non-developable land.

The housing program meets the functional and dimensional requirements of public housing according to law.

The property type, or more precisely, housing type are two, and respond to two fractions-type horizontal block. Both houses have direct access from the street and from the common garage which is below ground. Their program is essentially similar, three-bedroom with kitchen, living room and two bathrooms. Both are lighted and ventilated from holes in the facades to the street, and to their own courtyards. In no case housing holes open onto a patio that is not its own.

From these two type-houses are completed the two smallholdings, F1 and G1, with housing solutions as a variation of the above in the short sides of the plots corresponding to the boundary next to another property and to the shortest boundary facade. By this variation and aggregation process, it’s finally obtained 39 houses for the whole promotion.

    In a space where you can make a big house you did manage to do a small house…. It does not make sense.

    Entre el patio “prohibido-jugar-a-la-pelota” y el espacio íntimo y personal de estas “casas patio”, me quedo con lo segundo aunque entiendo que el hecho de que haya viviendas totalmente interiores pueda echar a más de uno para atrás.

    Lo que sí me gustaría saber es la comparativa de superficie de fachada entre un bloque tradicional en manzana abierta y este tipo de viviendas.

    Por cierto, en el vistazo rápido de ayer no conseguí entender por donde entra el tío de Seur cuando tenga que hacer una entrega….

    Cool, but wish I will never live in there.
