Contest Brief

UPDATES
6 july - added PDF with old design I don't want to use. Added options1&2.jpeg.
8 july - in options2.jpeg you can see that the best view is looking towards the road (downwards, to the south on the drawn map)(but on google maps towards the north. Coordinates of the land: 12.10218463705576, -68.88561237219639 )
9 july - 2 bathrooms is ideal (toilet + shower). Outside shower. Make balcony on 1st floor (front and back?). Ground floor max 80m2
10 july - Maximum building hight is 8 meters. I would likt to see the ground floor is a bit higher, higher ceiling for luxurious feeling. I would like the possibility of connecting doors from unit 1a to 1b and 2a to 2b.

Hello, I am a real estate developer in several countries. I need your help to get to a winning design for 4x MODERN/DESIGN apartments (or homes) that fit on this piece of land. My suggestion is to draw the floorplans that will result in something like the project in this attachment/picture, see "example3.jpeg". The 4 apartments are for holiday/vacation use.

I will reward the prize to the one which I think I can work best with to continue the project (and others).
Attached PDF is the piece of land, please take dimensions from that. The building in the PDF is the current building that will be demolished.

Local government building rules:
The land is 1140m2 total and the government rules are we can build 45% of the land, so max 513m2 area. So when we build 2 floors, it is max 2x513= 1026m2 theoretical total buildable/livable area. Maximum hight is 8 meter. Can't build within 2 meters from the neighbor and 5 meters from front sides. (please see lines in attached carawara2.jpeg) As you can see the land is on a corner, so it has 2 sides as front.

My wishes:
I want high ceilings for the living rooms (in each home/apartment) which should be connected to their private garden with small swimming pool. Around 100-160 m2 buildable/livable space (divided over 2 floors, excluding outside space) per home/apartment is fine. I want 3 or 4 bedrooms per home/apartment. Oh and mind the difference in land height. As you can see in the PDF, the opposite side is 120cm higher.

I like: concrete and natural colors, wood, high ceilings, minimalistic
I don't like: round shapes, color red

In the attachments I provide:
- a picture of the current building which is old and can be demolished.
- an overview map with area lines and the old building (see current situation PDF)
- some examples of design styles I like

Please ask me any details you need that are missing in my provided info.
Please provide me what your hourly rate is.
The design winner should provide me floorplans that fit into the given building rules.
On Curacao the average temperature is 30 degrees celcius.

QUESTIONS:
1. Do you have any specific dimension of your existing area ?
2. Is it 4 typical Homes must be fit in the existing area ?
3. Do you need carport for each Homes ?

ANSWERS:
1. Dimensions are in the PDF and carawara2.jpeg 1:200 scale. (please take dimensions of that)
2. Not typical homes, but modern design homes more like example3.jpeg (yes must fit)
3. Parking only if there is space/room left. (parking can be done on the street)

    Dear contest holder, this is an interesting project and I would love to participate. You can check my profile to get an idea of my previously done projects.
    I have a few questions I need clarification on, before I start working on the project:
    1) Do you need identical floor plans or they need to be different?
    2) Do you need a rendered 3d view as well or just floor plans?
    3) Can you provide a cad file of the site with proper dimensions?
