Club Med, in 1961, was a new-built private holiday village of 430 buildings, constructed on the Eastern tip of Iberian Peninsula, to receive approximately 900 visitors, 3 months a year. In 1998, the surroundings of Club Med has been classed with the highest ﬁgure of land protection and the cape Cap de Creus was declared Natural Park.
The restoration project by EMF + Ardevol consists mainly of:
• selective deconstruction of 430 buildings, equivalent of 1.2 ha of edification and 6ha of urbanization;
• management & recycling of 100% of construction waste, 45.000 m3, reusing ‘in situ’ local stone for landfills, and transporting ceramic materials outside for civil works;
• removal of Invasive Exotic Flora (IEF);
• restoration of the orography and drainage to re-establish the natural dynamics of erosion and transportation of sediments;
• creation of a hierarchical path system based on the existing road infrastructure.
