Must read

Sotogrande, Europe’s leading lifestyle and residential destination in southern Spain, is unveiling AQUA, an exclusive residence located in the ultra-private ‘The 15’ area in La Reserva.

The latest project from ARK Architects, AQUA takes its inspiration from the surrounding coastline, showcasing how sustainable architecture and luxury can be seamlessly integrated.

“The project is distinguished by a strong focus on sustainability, with roofs designed for solar panels, natural ventilation systems and a self-regulating pool”, according to architect Manuel Ruiz, AQUA’s designer. “Inspired by the majestic line of the sea stretching to the horizon, AQUA harmoniously fuses design with the natural environment and offers a unique experience of sustainable luxury.”

With a total area of 4,928 square meters and a built-up area of 2,534. square meters, AQUA enjoys an easterly orientation that optimises natural light and offers mesmerising sunrises. The villa extends over three floors and features a total of seven bedrooms, including a master suite, four additional suites, a guest suite and a service suite.

The extensive amenities include 10 bathrooms, an elevator, multiple fireplaces, an outdoor infinity pool, an indoor pool and spa, a gym, a home office, a wine cellar and an eight-space underground garage. The villa redefines the concept of grandeur by using carefully chosen materials such as travertine, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Ruiz added: “AQUA was designed as a tribute to this exceptional environment. In the design, the water of the sea blends seamlessly with the architecture of the house. By understanding and respecting the environment, we are able to develop projects that are in harmony with its essence.”

The unique offerings of La Reserva

At the heart of Sotogrande is La Reserva, the newest of four residential areas that make up this unique destination. La Reserva redefines the lifestyle of Sotogrande with a select collection of open-plan apartments and exclusive new-build villas with a strong sense of community and first-class facilities.

Continuing the success of The 15 and The Seven, La Reserva offers stunning villas designed by world-renowned architects, strategically located atop a hill to maximise the panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea. The villas represent luxury and sophistication and are known for their sustainable architecture, low building density and perfect integration into a unique ecosystem. A stunning example of this is NIWA, a turnkey project and masterpiece by ARK Architects at The Seven.

La Reserva’s offerings range from open-plan apartments and penthouses in Village Verde to exclusive plots in The Collection, overlooking the prestigious La Reserva Club golf course. The golf course epitomises the family environment at La Reserva, displaying pristine conditions and world-class surfaces on which to enjoy spectacular views of the Sotogrande.

La Reserva is also proud to offer the exclusive beach club, ‘The Beach’. Sotogrande is also home to a carefully curated array of dining and entertainment options, and the nearby International School makes it an ideal place for families to embrace year-round living.
