Xabia in Valencia - Spain, a sustainable new build designed by Hawkes Architecture.

Xabia  Spain

Designs are under development for this exciting new property in Spain.

The property is designed to be as ecological as possible and will be built from 500mm thick rammed earth walls, providing the building with natural strength and a high degree of thermal mass.

We will also incorporate large over sailing roofs, to provide solar shade during the summer months and minimise the need for air-conditioning. The inter-connected roofs have been designed to drain from one to another, creating spectacular waterfalls during the rainy season.

More information to follow after the Spanish planning process is complete.
