Vinival is an urban sector that takes its name from the old winery, whose main building is still preserved. Occupying twelve hectares, it displays enough entity to become a model fragment of a city. It is connected both with Alboraya and the city of Valencia, enjoying the proximity to the Mediterranean Sea and the orchards, which constitute the geographical-landscape identity of the area. Developed under the guidelines of specificity, diversity, sustainability, and architectural quality, the project is characterized by the coexistence of uses, the naturalization of the public space, and the construction of a cohesive community. The existing urban fabric offers no distinct characteristics, so the development of Vinival represents a great opportunity to achieve a new urban, social, and economic identity. Assuming this responsibility, the project proposes a city fragment with permanent activity, whose urban and landscape features, morphological and typological conditions, quality of public space and presence of nature, make up a holistic set. Lastly, the old winery will be refurbished and its program linked to new uses of urban culture such as education, health, economy, gastronomy, etc., mixed with the typical vegetable markets or maritime activities.
