1st Place Best Residential Home – Villas de Lujo

1st Place Best Residential Home – Villas de Lujo

On the 9th June 2017 at the 2017 Cemex awards ceremony in Mexico City Villas De Lujo’s project, Concretus House (shown in the feature video above), received first place for Best Residential Home in the very competitive International category. Entries were received from builders in countries across the globe including Germany, UAE, Spain, USA, Costa Rica, France, Latvia, Panama, Poland, and the Czech Republic.
Projects were assessed on their ability to 1) showcase concrete in a creative and innovative manner, 2) demonstrate a discerning lifestyle, 3) harmonize with the natural surroundings, and 4) hero concrete alongside other construction materials.

 

Overall concept and brief of the Villa:

Due to the remarkable ocean front location of the plot one of our key objectives for this luxury villa was to provide exhilarating views from almost the entirety of the house. At the same time we wanted a true ocean side retreat that highlighted privacy and a privileged lifestyle.

Prevailing seasonal wind directions, sun movement throughout the year, ventilation, heat absorption, and solar protection were all considered in order to achieve optimal living conditions combined with minimal energy usage.

We knew that entertainment and enjoyment would play a big role in the home and therefore made an important and distinct separation between the living and sleeping areas. (It should be noted that for potential future re-sale it was crucial that the villa would also be appealing and functional for a variety of family types and ages.)

Interior Design:

Regarding the interior design, light play, textures that married well with concrete, minimal but contrasting colours, and unimpeded views were the main considerations. To this effect we included only essential furnishings and decor whose textures and colours harmonised with the structure and whose arrangement paid tribute to the views. In addition, we used strategic applications of wood to contrast and balance certain focal areas of naked concrete, that felt almost abstract and art-like in an aesthetic sense.

 

Landscaping:

In order to integrate and harmonize with its natural environment the exterior landscaping highlighted native vegetation throughout the original terraced plot.

 

The effect:

A comfortable and enviable private habitat which boasts large light and bright open areas that effortlessly fuse indoor and outdoor living. Spaces exude charm and relaxation, and can be used for a multitude of lifestyle requirements.
