When we picture a luxury villa, we might mistakenly believe that its automated features and design would make it unsustainable. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Morning Breeze, the work of property developer Somium and architect Mónica Armani, has been designed based on four premises: quality, originality, innovation and, as one might imagine, sustainability.
Focusing on the most evident features, the villa is fitted with solar panels and equipped with A++ appliances, although its benefits go much further. It features an ETICS system (External Thermal Insulation Composite System), with cross ventilation inside the house. What is more, the original orography of the hill on which it stands remains untouched since the hill was not perforated or hollowed out, thanks to a complex engineering technique with drones.
As for the villa’s materials, it stands out particularly for the use of MDi, in a collection specially customized for the project by Inalco SSC. The collection has been used throughout this just under 1000m2house, in its interiors and exteriors, on both walls and floors, in addition to the 55m² outdoor swimming pool and spa areas. Its design, resistance, the ease with which it can be handled and its sustainability, in particular, were key factors in its choice as the main material for the house.
Luxury has been combined with sustainability in this resort, which was singled out to receive the Europe’s Leading Villa Resort, Spain’s Leading Villa Resort and Best Golf Course in Spain awards.
The highpoint of the resort, Morning Breeze villa, boasts a 240m2 terrace with panoramic views, a gym, spa, sauna, landscaped gardens, three-stop lift, 360º home automation system, seven-metre-high electrically operated front door and even a panic room.
The whole villa oozes with exclusive luxury, with top-range furniture brands such as the Saké sofas by B&B Italia, the Gaia and Calice armchairs by KFF and the Tao table by Tribù. Armani also designed some exclusive items for the project.
In short, Studio Mónica Armani and property developer Somium have skilfully designed a home where priority has been given to exclusive luxury and chic sophistication, while also bearing in mind one of the main premises and latest trends in 21st century architecture: sustainability.
