Elegant Innovation in an Imposing Setting
Extending over a majestic 2,000 square metres of built area in one of Europe’s most exclusive residential developments, this La Zagaleta property overlooks the Mediterranean like a watchtower. Stunningly designed on various levels, the villa almost seems to defy the laws of gravity. The house was constructed around a white arc central area on various levels, in the form of storeys superimposed with cantilevers more than three metres long. The storeys are distributed in such a way as to ensure the structural lines of movement always face the sea. This makes it seem much closer – almost tangible. The distinctive ARK architecture features pure and contemporary lines with a significant Eastern influence, in both concept and shape. The resulting loft is highlighted by translucent natural light and dynamic spaces. The spa was created as a perfect complement to the villa, comprising a complete thermal circuit and latest-generation fittings and rooms.
Scrupulously focused on elegance and functionality, the villa’s overall aesthetics have an outstanding individual character.
Modern Interpretation of Classic Architecture
ARK is committed to ongoing research into various traditional materials including iron, mortar and copper and the application of modern state-of-the-art techniques, enabling it to achieve eye-catching results with all its projects. The company is also closely involved with the interior decoration, creating the home as a whole – not in an isolated fashion – with the landscape, exterior design, architecture and decoration all blending together to ensure a harmonious finished home – like the property featured here. With more than a decade of experience in the construction sector, ARK comprises a multi-disciplinary team of technical architects specialising in the different fields of building and town planning. The company currently has two offices offering all the necessary resources and the highest quality standards. In designing spaces that are completely devoid of visual barriers, ARK achieves a perfect symbiosis between distinctive architectural styles to ensure maximum advantage is taken of the Mediterranean’s famed light. An intelligent mix of light and shadow, and warmth and freshness, finds its way into all the corners of an ARK home. Lofty windows let in as much natural light as possible and small strategically placed details ensure intimacy and privacy. Committed to excellence, ARK pays special attention to materials, selecting them all meticulously, and also gives the same importance to landscape and surroundings as to the actual house itself – “since we are dealing with living things”.
