The Regional Masterplan for Comillas University in Cantabria, situated in the north of the Iberian Peninsula, is a development proposed by The Cantabrian Coastal Management Plan. The project is located in a particularly sensitive site between the coastal boundary, the urban core of Comillas and a protected natural park. The plan proposes to convert the current historic buildings, which are part of the protected cultural heritage, into a college campus. The project proposes a new approach and understanding of place, planning, landscape treatment and functionality. Similarly, the plan incorporates prescriptive studies for environment and landscape.
