TERRITORY/ECOSYSTEM

The apartment is located in Reus, on the upper side of Passeig Sunyer, a very windy avenue, populated with high trees.

It is open to three orientations: south, east and west. Its height gives open and far views over most of el Camp territory.

 

NEEDS

A big apartment for a retired couple. He is from Gosford, Australia. She was born in Reus. They have spent the last twenty years living six months in Catalonia, six months in Australia, moving from warm season to warm season. A few months ago they chose to relocate their summer abode in Reus.

They want an apartment with open, distant views. To live close to the sky: the cloudless blue, the starry nights. They want an atmosphere that is both japanese and nordic.
