Sotogrande, Southern Spain
In a move away from the current fashions of architecture and residential architecture, we have created a villa which draws on the history of Andalusia.
With a strong Moroccan theme, this villa is set on a high plot within the Kings and Queens area of Sotogrande and offers a scale and grandeur not often seen in current homes.
We have located the villa on the highest point of the site to maximise views and, in the interior, we have created important vistas from the domed, double height entrance hall, through to the dramatic spiral staircase and double height living room and to the external terraces and garden areas.
The basement houses a sizeable garage, flexible leisure space, machine room and staff accommodation.
The ground floor contains kitchen, living and dining spaces and a guest bedroom, with extensive covered terraces.
The first floor houses the other en-suite bedrooms and master suite, all with terrace areas.
There is also a lift which links the basement through to the roof terrace level.
Adjacent to the main villa and the pool, there is a covered sitting and dining area with a further two guest bedrooms above and machine room and storage at basement level.
An important aspect of the design is the use of water in the landscaped gardens and at roof level.
