Traditional modern renaissance in Nueva Andalucía

We all know it; there’s been a modern architecture revolution in Marbella these past few years, with the bulk of new-built villas and apartments featuring contemporary white-plastered architecture and right-angled geometry. With it come a lot of glass surfaces and materials such as steel and chrome, though occasionally also softened with natural stone and wood.  Now, after a process that has lasted for almost a decade, there is a new trend visible, and this is the revival of traditional Mediterranean/Andalusian design elements. No, it doesn’t involve a full-scale return to classic architecture, but rather the merging of the best of both worlds by blending modern and more authentically local features into what are truly attractive homes.

So far, the trend is above all visible in villas, and it can take the form of both newly created properties and renovated existing ones. In the case of the latter, an older home in a top location is rebuilt so that it offers the latest modern comforts, technical infrastructure, electronics, features and amenities, as well as fully up to date interior and exterior styling.

Prime examples in Las Brisas, Nueva Andalucía

A prime example is this beautifully styled, totally renovated new villa in Las Brisas, the most exclusive part of Nueva Andalucía’s prestigious Golf Valley.

The same is also true of this large, luxurious villa set in a quiet cul-de-sac overlooking Las Brisas golf course and the surrounding country scenery.
