Modern and contemporary properties in Marbella
After rustic, colonial and Hispano-Moorish styles, as well as the fluid terracotta architecture inspired by Ouarzazate in Morocco’s south, Marbella and the Costa del Sol is undergoing a new design trend that is unashamedly modern. Crisp white tones are back, as are right-angled geometry, floor-to-ceiling windows, open-plan living and of course the latest home comforts and technology, with views remaining as important as ever.
The modern architectural trend that began some five years ago is not entirely new, as some of the earliest Mediterranean villas built in Marbella in the 1950s, 60s and 70s were early examples of what we still call modern architecture today. In fact, many of the best contemporary villas and apartment complexes being built now draw inspiration from the classic modern styles of that era, still benefitting also from pre-war pioneers such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier.
See down below a stylish modern villa in Santa Clara is a fine example of the contemporary homes for sale in Marbella right now, and those with a knowing eye will recognise the retro-modern references in its architecture. The technology a property like this houses under its skin is all new though, with state-of-the-art modern kitchens, bathrooms and entertainment areas managed by advanced home automation systems.
The apartments have not lagged behind, also featuring spacious open-plan living areas, panoramic windows and terraces that extend the chic interior and lifestyle to the outdoors. Many include private terrace pools or Jacuzzis, along with spas and gyms in the community and penthouses with rooftop terraces that look and feel much like a stylish beach club or lounge bar. Wood or stone soften the impact of modern styles to create an attractive clean look like this contemporary apartment complex on the Marbella Golden Mile.
