plaza baja square aerial picture goarquitecto

The square is located in front of Encarnación church, the main church in Alhaurín el Grande. The project brief was to pedestrianise the whole square, and restrict access to cars.

The square is finished in cream marble and red Alicante, making lines parallel to the church main entrance. The houses façades perpendicular to the church are not parallel, with this floor pattern we create an optical illusion that help us to perceive the space wider and deeper than it is in reality.
