Contest seeks design for luxury Marbella villa

  • Comment

An open international competition has been launched for a new luxury villa in Marbella, Andalusia

The winning design will be built on a 9,750m² plot inside the Mediterranean city’s prestigious La Zagaleta resort.

The leafy district features aheight restriction and is known for its low-density of development.

Contest organiser DOM3 hopes the winning scheme will boost awareness of Marbella’s luxury villa sector.

The city is one of the Costa del Sol’s most important tourist destinations and features thousands of holiday homes.

‘Luxury villas constitute the typology par excellence in this area, the crown jewels of Marbella’s town planning and its area of influence,’ according to the brief.

It continued: ‘An effort is therefore being made to inspire the construction of a single-family detached house that manages to unify architecture, landscaping and interior design.’

Entries will be judged on conceptual and technical quality, creativity, respect for the environment, materiality, feasibility and design presentation.

The competition is open to Spanish and international practices. Participation is not limited to registered architects but winning designs must be signed by off by an architect registered to practice in Spain.

The winning team – set to be announced on 27 June – will receive £33,000 to draft the initial designs for the project.

The deadline for submissions is 30 May.
