Management plan of uses, routes and activation of Santa Pola’s Mountain.

The Sierra of Santa Pola is a landscape of high ecological and geological value of the Spanish White Coast. Because of that, instead of a conventional bike lane with one strip of concrete, a network of routes was raised that linked the two towns in the area, the center of Santa Pola and the Gran Alacant housing development, strengthening gradually and through small interventions this large soft-infrastructure.
By having a tight budget, the interventions consisted in repairing elements, installing furniture and signage, conditioning the environment watchtowers, tanks and military installations of the Spanish Civil War, which serve as points of orientation tours, and restored will be a visited network of high value. Moreover are added new elements of access to the mountain and observation areas as the viewpoint of Faro, which uses the topography to generate a visible but subtle element, and point from to observe the landscape.
The bike lane is projected from these specific interventions that are defining the overall infrastructure of roads and trails as a constantly changing organism, unfinished and open to new interventions to consolidate the new uses and revalue the elements of its landscape.

The RAS Arquitectos studio is a collective of professionals from different fields of architecture and the environment with the aim of providing an open and complete look at the project of the city, the landscape, public space, its architecture, its problems and their potential. But we believe that this is not enough. It is only the indispensable.

The studio was founded in 2006 as a research site for Spanish projects coming up and meeting point for professionals in the area. It originates from the collaboration of several founders, Prócoro Del Real Baeza and AntoniBaile Jiménez, licensed by the Polytechnic School of Architecture in Alicante in 2008 and Masters in the Superior Technical School of Architecture of Madrid in 2012. Architects working together with other professionals in architecture since 2001.
In 2010, the study incorporated as an intergenerational fusion an architect, a technical architect and a decorator working together since 1980 in the field of architecture, providing the young studio with the experience and strength to implement any project.

The name “RAS” stands for Real Architecture Solutions, by reference to the nature of interactive response from the practice of architecture. Within the world of RAS the studio insists on forms of intelligent building technology, by inventing new solutions for everyday use of the spaces and places created for us.
