Rehousing of 1200 families in Elche

san anton 1

ATN+YIC+Laboratorio de Proyectos  propose an innovative solution for the rehousing of  1200families in the San Anton neighborhood in Elche, Alicante. Rather than programming a set of phases for moving out and in, their strategic goal is that no neighbor must leave the neighborhood. They must witness, from their existing houses, the construction of the new ones.

For that reason, instead of occupying the existing buildings footprint, the new ones will occupy the existing urban voids. Once the new is built up, the old can be demolished.

The strategy, thus, strives to reduce costs, not only economical but, and above all, social, emotional, cultural, political and environmental.
