Vista Lago Residences, the luxury development of 18 design-led sustainable villas overlooking Marbella, in has won in two categories in this year’s European Property Awards: Best in Spain for “Architectural Multiple Residence” and “Residential Development”.
The International Property Awards are the accepted benchmark for excellence in all sectors of the property industry worldwide, covering categories ranging from the design, construction and presentation of properties and developments to architectural and interior design, real estate and marketing. Candidates enter at national, regional and international levels, in that order. The awards, founded in 1993 by Stuart Shield, publisher of the International Property and Travel Magazine, describes them as similar to the “the Stirling Prize for architecture, but super-charged.”
Vista Lago Residences is the result of the hugely successful collaboration between the architectural and interior design company UDesign and the development company BRIGHT, whose world-class designs have already won the Best in Spain and Best in Europe in the same Property Awards in 2019 with the one-of-a-kind Villa Alcuzcuz. In that case, the awards were in the “Architecture Single Residence” category. This year’s win is a double for Vista Lago, in that the Architectural Multiple Residence award went to UDesign as the architects and the Residential Development award was for BRIGHT as developers.
Michael Rodziewicz, BRIGHT’s CEO explained the company’s design-led philosophy, “We think in terms of design, always. This is the primary expression of our creativity, always aiming for a certain feeling that creates a framework for a certain lifestyle. A great home should improve your quality of life, probably more than any other single factor. Every villa in Vista Lago is both a stunning property and a unique home.”
The win automatically nominates Vista Lago Residences for the upcoming “Best in Europe” awards in these categories. Winning here would set the development up for the grand final “Best in the World” awards at the end of the year.
