Vinival neighborhood in Alboraya

With a geographic and landscaping identity defined by its proximity to the sea and to orchards, the plan for the urban development of the 124,200-square-meter Vinival neighborhood features an assortment of residential typologies and community facilities and services, taking its name from the old wineries whose main building still stands in the municipality of Alboraya. Combining sustainability and architectural quality, the office of Juan Herreros and Jens Richter proposes to mix uses together, naturize public spaces, and create a unified community connected, in turn, to the city of Valencia. The former winery building is revamped for new uses (education, health, the economy, gastronomy, and so on), interspersed with old enterprises of the area, such as a vegetable market and maritime activities.
