9 VALUATION CRITERIA

9.1 The judging criteria for the assessment of the works will be supported by:

Conceptual and technical quality.
Study of analysis, reflection and research on the subject and the spatial experience of the environment.
Creativity and innovation.
Respect for the environment.
Adequacy of the project idea, expressive capacities of materials and products as well as new proposals on materials, finishes and applications, etc.
Feasibility, potential and construction.
Adequacy of the support with respect to the chosen presentation graphics, quality and expressiveness.

9.2 Verification of compliance with existing standards of the Spanish Technical Building Code.

9.3 The working criteria to be met in the project design, which has been established jointly by DOM3 members and the developers of the plots to be developed, are as follows:

Previous:

The design concept intended with this competition is to achieve a residential space which encourages relationships between the residents. All three plots should have an organised unity, connecting the architectural proposals and creating areas of natural interaction between the inhabitants of the three plots.

Until the twentieth century, there were many meeting places in towns and villages, depending on the places and times; life was structured around markets, plazas, town halls, railway stations and other central areas.
These places were naturally conducive to creating relationships between inhabitants, and word of mouth was the primary means of communication, entertainment and information between citizens.

Nowadays, new technologies allow us to interact without physical presence. In the developed world, former places to meet and/or socialise have disappeared under skyscrapers, shopping centers and office buildings.

One of the most important changes in the design of residential areas in the XXI century is to incorporate places which naturally promote interaction between people; this ambition must always be foremost in our minds.

It is intended that the project confers on this community the true meaning of that word, that is, to become a place where people not only live alongside each other but also actively live together and share their dreams and those of their children.

To achieve this goal, the proposal should consider the creation of places or areas to encourage interaction among residents. Some of the most important inclusions would be:

Squares or meeting places, where people could engage in communal pastimes, leisure activities etc., as done in the Agoras of ancient Athens or in Roman Forums. Bars, cafes, and or restaurants could feature here, favouring interrelationships between neighbours.

Parks, well-landscaped green areas – creating a green contrast to traffic and concrete are other elements to consider. Other potential areas to promote socialising such as playgrounds, play areas for dogs, sports courts, picnic areas and/or barbecues, etc. It is very important that parents and children have places where they can enjoy experiences together, amongst themselves and in harmony with other families. Parents can converse and network with other parents whilst their children play, enjoying themselves at the same time as the children.
Areas for dogs are another very interesting way of encouraging interaction as they lead to conversations between dog owners and therefore naturally provide a new way to develop friendships.

Important note:

In the master plan these three plots should be considered as a single unit, while taking into account the peculiarities of each individually, and the need to function independently of each other, since their construction and delivery to future owners will be phased.

1. – INTRODUCTION

1.1.- DOM3

The Association of Businesses for High Quality Housing (DOM3)unites experienced businesspeople and professionals from several sectors, who share one aim: to preserve and promote the design, development and construction of high-quality homes in Marbella and nearby areas.

DOM3 believes that the interchange of information, mutual co-operation and joint action are the driving forces behind the success of both the high-end villa and tourism sectors in Marbella.

1.2.- In its search for excellence, DOM3 has the pleasure of convening the very first edition of the DOM3 Architecture Prize for the design of a luxury villa.

Luxury villas are the archetypal construction in this area; the crown jewels in the town planning scheme of Marbella and its area of influence. Due to its low plot ratio, the sustainability of this segment should be highlighted, along with the height limitations and extensive green areas that surround every plot, in contrast to many other types of housing. The income generated by foreign residential homeowners additionally has a very positive impact on the local economy.

For the first edition of the DOM3 PRIZE, the La Zagaleta development will be offering a plot for a detached single-family villa on a privileged site, which will be available contenders for the prize.

2.- PURPOSE AND SITE

1.2.- This Prize is aimed at promoting the luxury villa segment in Marbella and its area of influence, and at strengthening and consolidating the Marbella brand as a destination for international residential tourists.

2.2.- It is proposed that candidates reflect on luxury housing as the maximum expression of design, quality and location – this basic tenet should enable participants to develop particularly interesting projects. Offering a plot in highly privileged surroundings (in the La Zagaleta development in this first edition), DOM3 hopes to inspire the construction of a single-family detached house which gracefully unifies architecture, landscaping and interior design.

2.3.- The location of the proposed Prize plot J-8 (9,750 m2) in the La Zagaleta development, along with the town planning provisions that must be complied with, can be accessed on 192.168.1.152/dom3_antiguo.

3. – PARTICIPANTS

3.2.- Architects may participate on an individual basis, as part of a multidisciplinary team or as legal persons whose corporate purpose coincides with that of the Prize, provided that the design project to be submitted carries the signature of an architect who meets the requirements set forth in the preceding point.
