Location: Arcos de la Frontera, Spain
Project Categories: UrbanismCodes
Year Started: 2006
Status: unbuilt
Size: 461 acres

In 2007, DPZ worked with Hines to design a new town in the outskirts of Arcos de la Frontera in Andalusia, Spain. The charrette team explored the great traditions of the local Spanish vernacular architecture and urbanism, and applied them to the design of this new community.

The new settlement consisted of a necklace of neighborhoods surrounding a Robert Trent Jones II designed golf course that was taking advantage of the topography of the site and the spectacular views. Some of the features of the plan include: picturesque, narrow streets; organic, pedestrian-friendly blocks; a variety of courtyard building types; and an abundance of public spaces, from small plazas and greens to grand squares and promenades.
