Península of Sancti-Petri Winning Proposal / BAKPAK Architects

Courtesy of

With everything today changing and the fishing architecture gone, the village of Sancti Petri owes its importance to the past tuna industry and seafarers. This first prize winning proposal in the competition for the urban and architectural design of the Península of Sancti-Petri aims to give back the original meaning to the peninsula by reinterpreting architectural and spatial values of the past. Designed by BAKPAK Architects, this “new town” is divided into 13 themed compact-use sets, and each of them are made up of modules. More images and architects’ description after the break.
