The development brief for the large 750ha site allowed for 2 hotel developments, one 5 star hotel and another luxury ‘boutique’ castle hotel, with over 400 residential units comprising of stand alone villas, villa apartments and townhouses to create a central residential village based on the intricate vernacular of Moroccan towns.The steep topography of the site situated on the Gibraltar Strait created opportunities for a series of interesting scales of space, with cascading levels of small streets, private squares and souks that lead down to a funicular railway connecting a private beach to the hotel and village above.
