A series of multi-storey mixed use developments will replace the existing industrial buildings on Devil’s Tower Road, Gibraltar.
This development not only embraces the changing face of Gibraltar, but aims to set the pace and raise the bar for future projects in the area.
The design introduces contemporary uses of materials and form including green walls, both public and private facilities including a café, gym, parking, commercial units and apartments ranging from studios to 4 bedroom apartments.
The apartments are to be Irregularly shaped terraces give privacy to the residents and are set back from the perimetre of the building, in order to prevent direct sunlight, and additionally create shadows that provide interest to the elevation. Sustainability has been a driving factor in the design of the concepts – informing the form of the building as well as the
general aesthetic. Louvred panels have been incorporated into most of the apartments as well as greenery to the facade. A combination of horizontal and vertical louvres at the lower floors will avoid direct daylight into the commercial spaces. Situated either side of what will become the main thoroughfare into Gibraltar from the Spain border as well as a residential hub, the backdrops on either side offer the iconic Rock and the mountains of Andalucia in Spain.
