Undoubtedly this is a bold and innovative proposal that avoids all the usual clichés of architecture dedicated to apartment blocks. Making the most of the outstanding location on the last available building block on Ibiza’s magnificent Passeig Marítim, the architects’ proposal is based on that of an Italian-style theatre with its horseshoe shape and descending volume, as if it were an amphitheatre from which the harbour and the old city can be viewed. For this reason, all the apartments have an elongated plan and a radial orientation, a solution which allows for the enjoyment of excellent views from both the front and the rear, transforming it into a living lookout point. The complex consists of 178 units ranging from 80 to 200 m², each one with a different layout, clustered around 15 stairwell zones with a communal fitness centre, pool, bar, games room and other services that are aimed at making life more comfortable for the residents. The spacious terraces face the south, extending the living areas of the apartments in the form of covered outdoor spaces with magnificent views.
