FROM MARBELLATO REPRESENT SPAIN
The architects of Marbella’s first luxury, sustainable home, UDesign, have been honoured with the top award in Spain by the International Property Awards, in the category “Architecture Single Residence”. Villa Alcuzcuz will now compete with the rest of the world for the coveted title of “World’s Best”.
Villa Alcuzcuz is 1.460 m2 of pure design, but it’s much more than just another fabulous villa – it’s Marbella’s first luxury house designed under Passive House Regulations and Standards. This means it is environmentally friendly to an exceptionally high degree with a very low carbon footprint.
The development company, Bright, is proud to have created the first luxury, sustainable property in Marbella’s high-end market and is hoping this initiative will be continued by others.
Lowering our carbon footprint is something we should all be doing. Thanks to Passive House regulations and standards, our homes can actually help us to achieve a sustainable lifestyle.
The first luxury, sustainable property
in marbella’s high-end market.
Energy efficiency lies at the heart of the Passive House concept. Over the course of a year, a Passive House uses no more than the equivalent of 1.5 litres of oil or 1.5 m3 of natural gas (15kWh) to heat each square metre of living space.
This can equate to more than a 90 %reduction in space heating and cooling energy use, compared to consumption in a typical building stock, while a conventional new build still requires 6 to 10 (or even more) litres of oil per year and square metre of living space, depending on building quality and location. In addition to the Passive House insulation system, Villa Alcuzcuz uses an aerothermal ventilation system and solar panels for the water supply, the underfloor heating and the LED lighting system.
Villa Alcuzcuz sits on one of the highest plots in the exclusive Reserva de Alcuzcuz on the Ronda Road and enjoys breathtaking views over Los Arqueros Golf to the Mediterranean Sea and Africa beyond.
