PGA Catalunya Resort is delighted to unveil its latest luxury real estate offering – the L’Olivera 4 Villa by RCR ARQUITECTES
World-Leading PGA Catalunya Resort is thrilled to unveil its latest luxury real estate offering – the L’Olivera 4 Villa, a new Villa expertly designed by RCR Arquitectes, a prestigious Spanish architecture firm consisting of principles and co-founders, Rafael Aranda, Carme Pigem and Ramon Vilalta.
Founded in 1989, RCR Arquitectes have since attracted a wide array of awards including the renowned Pritzker Prize in 2017. They continue to create spatial experiences in both the public and private sectors, with projects renowned for their broad range in both type and scale with their work including urban, landscape, architectural and design projects in a variety of locations in Catalonia and internationally. PGA Catalunya Resort have partnered with RCR Arquitectes to design the real estate offering at the resort, confidently knowing that RCR will make the most of the incredible Catalan landscape whilst avoiding the appearance of a constructed mass.
Integral to all of RCR’s work is the surrounding natural landscape, the location of the project is not just another aspect of their design concepts. The location forms the physical and metaphysical basis of the project by uncovering the essence of each location. RCR help to unveil the plots individual atmosphere through their creations, which viewed collectively, shape the idea of a hidden paradise that can be found at the heart of every garden.
Designed to forge a connection between interior and exterior spaces, L’Olivera 4 Villa explores structural themes that support the nature of the architecture. Located in the prestigious L’Olivera area of the resort, with stunning views across the fairways dotted and surrounding green grounds, the L’Olivera 4 Villa will set the new standard for landscape architecture – placing humans and nature at the centre of the design so the space contributes towards health and wellbeing, working with the landscape to create a fusion between the home and the surrounding nature to provide the homeowner with a holistic living experience.
The L’Olivera 4 Villa is not only a home, but also a piece of landscape at PGA Catalunya Resort, designed with the upmost simplicity allowing for maximum flexibility and adaptability. The design focuses on porticoes that look outward towards the lake and golf course beyond, whilst opening into the plot’s interior landscape. Arranged flexibly on the plot, the spaces create inner courtyards to help bring the outdoors in, alongside the façade which reflects the richness of the surrounding outdoor landscape without becoming a barrier. This wonderful example of landscape architecture provides a continual focal point of the lake, a meditative thread that runs through the L’Olivera. The L’Olivera 4 Villa appears to be suspended in the air with water flowing from the entrance to the swimming pool, creating a relaxing river that draws you into and through the home, allowing each space to invite its residents to connect with the beautiful surrounding landscape. Inside, the spaces naturally look out towards the golf course and open onto the inner courtyards, blending the outside and inside spaces together seamlessly, creating a simultaneous immersion between the architecture and nature.
Another innovative aspect of the L’Olivera 4 project is the partnership formed by RCR ARQUITECTES and the Project Management company CERCLE GESPROMAT, which enabled this form of landscape architecture a reality at PGA Catalunya Resort. RCR will count on Cercle Gespromat to carry out the comprehensive management of the flexible and modular construction process of L’Olivera 4, working in tandem to ensure that the concept is reflected upon final construction.
