Modern design is loved by critics and architects alike, who enjoy the creative freedom it offers them, while the general public has also once again embraced its clean geometric lines, uncluttered interior, open-plan layouts and panoramic window frontage. It is fair to say that modern architecture is very much in fashion these days, especially in Marbella, evolving all the time from the original stark white geometry of a few years ago to now also incorporate solid materials such as wood, stone and oxidised iron. Colour is another element that is coming back, along with retro-inspired elements and a growing trend towards eclectic mixing of old and new, with ethnic motifs from around the world thrown in. In the hands of a knowing professional the effect is simply stunning, but with modern designs more than others you can get it very right or very wrong. The quality of the architecture, the balanced proportion of dimensions and the standard of materials used are what make the difference between flop and modern classic. As developers of modern properties on the Costa del Sol we are very aware of this and take great care not just to blindly follow trends and produce ‘standard’ homes but to really look at the design of the projects we develop. In this we analyse the location, surroundings, views and also the specific lifestyle the properties offer. An apartment differs from a villa or semi-detached villa in its make up, and a city centre apartment is sufficiently distinct from a residential, beach side or front-line golf one to warrant personalised thinking when it comes to design, dressing, landscaping and amenities. We love this process and challenge the architects we work with to go that much further each and every time we commence a new project, be it a Marbella villa, a townhouse in La Cala de Mijas or modern apartments on the New Golden Mile. The result is a standard of design that is the product of true attention to detail, passion for design and the desire to offer our home-buyers something unique in every Altavista Property development. It is how we wowed the market with the look and features of the villas at La Finca de Marbella and achieved commercial and critical success with the inspired architectural styling of the Cabopino apartments at La Montesa de Marbella.
