After STAR strategies + architecture S.L.P. won the first phase of the International Idea Competition Mirador del Palmeral in July 2009 STAR was commissioned to design the public space Paseo de la Estación. The design was made for the client Ajuntament d’Elx – City of Elche.
The site was Avenida del Paseo de la Estación in Elche, Alicante in Spain. LAP Landscape & Urban Design assisted in this second phase of the design with making the artist impressions. The project covered 15.000 m2 with promenade area, new square and green zones. The main design ideas were to provide the city with an architectural device from which the palm grove of Elche could be admired and to redevelop the area of the surroundings of the Paseo de la Estación. Secondly enhancing the agricultural cultivation of the Arab Palm tradition, elaborating on the orchards Heritage site and boulevard.
