Living in Delta Hills
Located on the edge of the city in a rapidly changing neighbourhood marked by its industrial past, the still visible traces of which, in the form of elegant chimneys, punctuate Malaga’s beach, the site offers undeniable advantages in regard to its inscription in a dynamic which will transform it into a new hub: the proximity of the sea, the airport, and a major natural space, as well as a direct link to the downtown area via an expressway.
But what image should be given to the site, a future bridge between the city and the sea?
How should the connection between town planning, architecture and landscape be established? What lifestyles should be suggested “between the city and the sea”?
To reply to these questions, we have decided to tell three stories which are all part of a greater vision.
Seen from the sea, the project is a landscape of hills that provides a strong gesture in regard to its existing environment.
Seen from the sky, a delta traverses the hills and opens the city onto the sea.
Seen from the land, there is a good deal of commercial activity, a variety of different programmes, and a range of living styles all sheltered under a protective canopy.
