Rafael Aranda, Carme Pigem, and Ramon Vilalta of RCR Arquitectes, are behind the signature designs at Palmares. Their unique approach in combining buildings and places that are both local and universal at the same time helped them to take home the 2017 Pritzker prize, the world’s most prestigious architecture award.

The careful consideration given to the natural location of every building made them the only choice for Palmares where the villas, apartments and the Clubhouse work with the landscape, to become part of it and to complement the panoramic vistas.
