RCR, Resort Palmares in Lagos (Portugal)

This project by the Catalan firm RCR – Rafael Aranda, Carme Pigem, and Ramón Vilalta – seeks to blend the architecture with the landscape through interiors and exteriors that blur its limits, adapting to the topography of the site in Lagos, in southern Portugal’s Algarve region.

The masterplan drawn up for the real estate developer Kronos Homes includes RCR’s design for 8 villas, 37 apartments of 1 or 2 bedrooms apiece (due for completion in 2021), and a new clubhouse (to open in 2020). These will rise beside the existing golf course and Palmares Beach House hotel.

The various elements are integrated into the complex in a way that creates a unitary identity, the inspiration for which comes from vernacular building tradition.
