Residential Mirasal’ is a contemporary residential complex designed by Spanish firm Balzar Arquitectos, located in Torrevieja in southern Spain.

Torrevieja is a coastal city in the province of Alicante, known for its Mediterranean climate, sandy beaches and nature reserves with pink salt lagoons. The location of the apartment complex is particularly scenic, sitting in close proximity to the Lagunas de La Mata, or the aforementioned salt lakes. The modern complex itself features a clean, concrete facade, in a sandy off-white color that mimics the tonal palette of the nearby seaside. “The building seeks to harmonize with the topography, matching the natural terrain”, explain the architects. “It is an architecture with a will to express itself as a whole, whose plasticity is given by its horizontal proportions and its white materiality.” The striking complex is triangular in shape and features an interior garden.‘Residential Mirasal’ is set for completion in 2019.
