    The study and analysis of the Old Town of Puerto de Santa María valuable conclusions are drawn in terms of design and layout.

    Urban pattern of the Old Town is dense, tight, low-rise buildings, narrow streets that intersect.

    City to promenade for its measured streets, with width just and sun-protected.

    In contrast stand perfectly buildings from the urban expansion already made: routine and typical residential blocks, unscaled urban or intention, that we are tired of seeing on the periphery of our cities.

    In the planning of La Florida -65.5Ha-, there is enough land to raise a further expansion of the city according to the most representative features collected from the historic center.

    We try to make a city with a dense network in its drawing and low height -two floors-, plenty of vegetation mixed with the buildings -garden city-, creating a mild microclimate in an excessively hot place in summer. Streets with the right size in width, tree-lined sidewalks for walking shadow.

    The public facilities (schools, gardens, shops and social centers) are distributed equally to households for use and continued enjoyment.
