A LUXURIOUS villa in Marbella in Spain’s Costa del Sol has been crowned at the prestigious International Property Awards, winning ‘Best in Spain’ and ‘Best in Europe’ in the category of Architecture Residence.
Constructed by the development company BRIGHT, Villa Alcuzcuz is Marbella’s first avant-garde luxury house which has been designed and built under Passive House regulations and standards.
This means that the property boasts environmental friendliness to an exceptionally high degree, guaranteeing more than 75% saving on energy costs, despite its impressive size. Situated in the exclusive community of the Reserva de Alcuzcuz on the Ronda road, the villa provides consistently fresh air throughout the house, structural longevity and the absence of any mould.
The property was developed with an ecological commitment and is the first in Spain that has been built under the demanding Passive House, a concept that originated in Germany in the 1980s in order to create homes with minimal energy consumption.
Speaking after the coveted win, Jason Harris, the CEO of UDesign said: “We are very excited for this recognition, since it is a triumph for the entire architecture and design sector in southern Spain.” Harris who worked alongside BRIGHT CEO Michael Rodziewicz to form the innovative company added that: “The true beauty of a design lies in how it works, feels and how it looks.”
Established in 1993, the International Property Awards are open to residential and commercial property professionals from around the globe, celebrating the highest levels of achievement and serving as a mark of excellence.
