A New Standard

A New Standard


Sustainability and luxury might be perceived as being on opposite ends of the comfort spectrum, but Villa Alcuzcuz brings the two together, setting a new standard for Marbella’s property market.

By Anastasia Sukhanov

Within the last year, the ecological crisis our planet is facing has become ever more apparent, and it is clear that no industry can ignore sustainability concerns. We all have to deepen our commitment to sustainability on all levels, and fast. And one of the fastest ways to do this relates to energy: energy efficiency, renewable energy and energy conservation. How we live from day to day is the issue.

Sustainable architecture is a critical factor to sustainable living on a daily basis. A house built under normal building regulations does not achieve much in the way of sustainability, with a high carbon footprint using huge amounts of energy for heating or cooling. Yet there are other ways to build which can reduce this energy consumption dramatically – by 75% in most cases.

Villa Alcuzcuz is Marbella’s first luxury house designed under Passive House Regulations and Standards. Energy efficiency lies at the heart of the Passive House concept. Over the course of a year, a Passive House uses no more than the equivalent of 1.5 litres of oil to heat or cool each square metre of living space.  A conventional new build still requires 6 to 10 (or even more) litres of oil per year and square metre of living space, depending on building quality and location.

In addition to the Passive House insulation system, the villa uses an aerothermal ventilation system and solar panels for the water supply, underfloor heating and LED lighting system. It is south-facing, to take advantage of the wonderful climate in southern Spain, and the terraces are designed as large projected “sunbrellas” that protect the house.

Villa Alcuzcuz brings sustainability and luxury together, combining environmentally sustainable characteristics with sheer, unadulterated luxury. The development company, BRIGHT, is proud to have created this unique property, the first of its kind in Marbella’s high-end market, and is hoping its initiative will be continued by others.

Villa Alcuzcuz sits on one of the highest plots in the exclusive Reserva de Alcuzcuz, on the Ronda Road, and enjoys breathtaking views over the Los Arqueros golf course to the Mediterranean Sea and Africa beyond. With the building process well underway, the villa is due for completion early next year.
