This outstanding contemporary modern villa is located in La Alqueria, to the south west of Marbella. Positioned on a stunning plot of 1230m2 in the hills, it has glorious views overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and the coast of North Africa.
The property has been designed to showcase the engineering excellence, attention to detail and beautiful build lines that characterize their entire range of houses and villas.
With a built area of 429m2 the villa is constructed using the proprietary modular design pioneered by Lifestylehouse, which forms the basis of all of their constructions.
Based on a series of highly engineered steel corner elements combined with advanced concrete techniques, the entire villa has no internal walls at all, with over 80% of external glass.
Structural integrity is superb, with all load bearing structural elements over-engineered in relation to the demands put on them, floors are constructed using an advanced honeycomb design and shutters are hurricane proof.
Both the ground floor and the first floor quite literally “float” above the ground level. In addition, the first floor terrace hangs, unsuspended, in a quite spectacular fashion over the ground floor.
In fact the entire first floor is a masterpiece of design layout. There are 3 bedrooms, all of which having stunning views through the expansive areas of glass and the master bedroom has 180 degree views.
The ground floor reflects the very best of contemporary modern villa design. The walls are fully glazed and there is a large and spacious living room area with an open plan kitchen, plus a guest toilet and lounge area / entertainment area.
The living area leads onto an impressive fully floating covered terrace area, constructed using the same design principles as the entire house. From here you can access a further uncovered deck and terraced area, featuring an oversized infinity pool.
The internal finishings and installations reflect one of the hallmarks of Lifestylehouse – the quality and engineering precision of the materials used. Because the villas and houses are engineered prior to construction, there are massive savings on the labour costs of building the homes. These savings are passed on to the owners for their benefit, allowing the use of only the best materials for the same end cost.
Lifestylehouse have pioneered a system that takes full advantage of the inherent design benefits of a modern home. By setting out a detailed blueprint for the homes prior to construction and by using pre-manufactured components that can be brought together onsite, the houses are not only beautiful from an architectural point of view, but also from an engineering point of view.
A further benefit is that the modular concept allows for a turnkey project to be completed with 7 to 10 months.
Prior to construction of the home, the owner is provided with the complete blueprint of the design, down to the smallest detail, in the form of a book. This ensures that the customer can be a confident in knowing exactly how the house or villa will look upon completion, as all of the building elements are then pre-manufactured in accordance with the blueprints.
The company is already building on their success and currently have projects on the go in Miami, Puerto Rico, Dubai and the South of Spain, with further worldwide projects planned.
