Tabernas, Almeria, Spain
After working in Algeria, Spain on the final Season of 'Penny Dreadful', I was approached by a Western/Cowboy Theme Park called 'Mini Hollywood' to design a new extension to their already large Western town, which had been built for the Spaghetti Westerns in the 70's.
There were some relatively uninteresting areas that they wanted to bring to life & having seen 'Penny Dreadful' film at another Theme Park they wanted to make theirs more appealing to both the public & potential new films as a Wild West location.
VILLA DESIGN & BUILD
I designed the house in 2012 & handed the designs to a local Architect to complete the drawings required for planning permissions.
It is designed to be a very light & bright house but protected from direct sun except in the winter when the sun is allowed to enter to help maintain warmth. The construction began in late February 2013 & was completed just over 1 year later.
There are still areas of the garden to finish but here are some drawings & photos of the project. I was trained as an Interior Designer with a degree in 3D design & I am available & would love to design more villas or any kind of development such as hotels or restaurants.
I worked on several large commercials in the 80's & 90's as Art Director including a British Telecom commercial with Stephen Hawking but had not made any more until 2 years ago.
The first was a Hunky Dory Crisp commercial in Dublin, Ireland. Richie Smyth was directing & it was set in a stylised Ancient Greek bathroom.
The set was built in a studio.
The second was San Miguel beer made in Barcelona & Thailand with JA Bayona directing.
The commercial was shot mainly on locations & required some construction but mainly dressing.
