We love to see examples of natural elements being integrated in architecture. Setenil de las Bodegas is a town in the province of Cádiz, Spain, famous for its rock overhangs. Its unusual location along a narrow river gorge was turned by the inhabitants into an architectural advantage, with some of the houses being built into the rock walls of the gorge itself. The result is a lovely small town, with a surprising design every step of the way.

Each street in Setenil is different and sometimes visitors can feel overwhelmed by the large stones hanging above their heads. This is definitely not a place for claustrophobics! Walking through the town will reveal its traditional building facades, contrasted by the roughness of the old gorge cliffs and the various vegetation growing on these unusual rocky formations. How would you comment on the architecture of this fascinating small town in Spain? And how would you feel about living in a city… invaded by rocks?

The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.

These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
