The Asociación de Empresarios para la Vivienda de Alta Calidad (DOM3) brings together entrepreneurs and professionals with expertise in various sectors whose objective is to promote actions to preserve and promote the business of design, development and construction of high quality housing in Marbella and its area of influence.
DOM3 believes in the exchange of information, in mutual cooperation and combined action as a vector for the development of the sector and for the Marbella brand of tourism.
In its pursuit of excellence DOM3 is pleased to announce the second edition of the Architecture Award DOM 3 PRIZE for the design of world class housing developments.
World-class housing, villas and apartments, are the characteristics of excellence in this area, the flagship of urban planning in Marbella and its influential surroundings.
In this second edition of the DOM3 PRIZE the Promoter Urbania International, through its Urbania society Santa Clara Development IV company, is making available to contestants three plots for the development of a harmonized architectural complex of detached villas and apartments in the privileged setting of the Santa Clara de Marbella urbanisation.
The purpose of this award is to promote development within the up market developments sector in Marbella and its surrounding influential area, whilst at the same time strengthening and consolidating the Marbella trademark on an international level as a destination for residential tourism.
2.2 The proposal is to reflect on prestigious housing whilst at the same time striving for excellence in design, opening a debate on this type of beautiful, sustainable and modern architecture. On that basis, participants will be able to develop projects of special interest. The intention therefore, apart from this privileged and perfect setting ( in this second edition, three plots of Santa Clara urbanization), is to inspire the creation of a harmonized architectural project of semi-detached villas and apartments where contestants manage to unify architecture, landscaping and interior design.
In this second edition of DOM3 PRIZE all architects, Spanish or not, and legally qualified to practice within the Spanish territory may participate. It is not necessary to be licensed as an architect in Spain to participate in the contest.
A new category has been created for this edition devoted to architecture students who can prove their enrolment in a school of architecture, either in Spain or abroad. Works submitted in this category will be governed by the same requirements contained in the general rules, and although they will not be eligible for the prizes described in paragraph 10, a special mention will be included in the awards ceremony.
3.2 Architects may participate individually or as multidisciplinary teams, as well as any legal persons whose social objectives correspond with the objective of the competition, as long as the project to be submitted has been signed by an architect who meets the provisions of the preceding paragraph. Each participant is free to submit as many proposals as necessary.
