Renowned architects at luxury residential industry

luxury residentials

Luxury residentials, as those we make customized in iLuxenio,  them have a work behind that we couldn’t be able to imagine.  If we don’t know about the construction process of a home from zero deeply.

First of all, who is behind the creation of luxury residentials is mainly the architect. The authentic orchestra conductor of the works which are being built and the ones about to build. A luxury architect has qualities as them could be the extreme detail at work execution. Probably, the tendency to landscaping and a refined taste for the home adaption to the environment. From its guidance to the riges’ play  of the materials which are being used.

In addition, at the moment of building our own luxury residentials it’s essential to choose the architect who adapts the most to the home style in which you imagine yourself living in. So,  as we do in iLuxenio, where you can check the works of different architects and choose the style  which you feel identified the most.

Most renowned architects in luxury residentials:

 

It’s the studio directed by Rafael Llamazares and Joaquín Torres. In the projects’ portfolio they count on the construction of the exclusive and luxurious development ‘La Finca’ in Pozuelo de Alarcón. This residential complex is the home for numerous footballers and singers, among its inhabitants they are Cristiano Ronaldo or Alejandro Sanz. Both architects are friends since they studied together at University and after designing their own bar in La Coruña. The magnate Amancio Ortega asked them to design several establishments for his chain and his own residential ‘El Parrote’. Since then, their career only has emerged, until the point that they were given the task to design half of ‘La Finca’. Nowadays they own several headquarters all over the world: Dubai, Santo Domingo, India, Russia or Vietnam. Here we leave you a pic of other luxury residential projects :

This architect from Bilbao, Eduardo Arroyo, is the one behind this studio. Staunch defender of signature style, as he reflects on his works. Apart from the ideas which the ‘manipulated’ from the Architecture Colleges defend, he keeps a web open by pure ‘obligation facing the virtual world’. Therefore his projects’ portfolio is as abstract and eye-catching as his professional profile:

He’s an architect wordly known as much for his professor’s aspect as for his architect’s. In his great residential works’ portfolio we find one of the most notable, ‘Casa del Infinito’, above the endless sea of Cádiz, the city where he grew up. In addition, together with his team they run the studio which has his own name, he defines his architectural work as a mix between the Gravity that defines space and the Light which builds the time.

  • Alfredo Muñoz

This young architect is the one behind the studio Abibbo. He’s more than probably one of the new pearls of Spanish architecture.  Moreover, for his early age he has already learnt and has let himself influence by the best architects (Campo Baeza or Toyo Ito). His projects’ portfolio is very diverse but his most stunning works are luxury residentials. Also he has already built in India, Spain or Dominican Republic. This studio’s philosophy is based on architecture innovation, the urbanism, the interior design and the product development.

La Finca: First of all, this is the most private and secure residential complex in Madrid’s community. Also
 placed in the near municipality of Pozuelo de Alarcón, it’s famous maybe for being the home of football players such as Cristiano Ronaldo or singers such as Alejandro Sanz. Also, the most characteristic aspects of this place, its inhabitants have remarked its extreme security, with some sophisticasted identification systems or the strict confindentiality code that facilities’ workers must keep. But the main requirement to be a neighbour of this residential area it’s not the purchase power, as there’s an interview with the area sales agents in which one or other buyer has been dismissed as a neighbour.

Why to have an infinity pool?

infinity pool

As many of us have already seen in the best resorts of the world , it’s imposible to imagine a luxury hotel in a dream location without an infinity pool which allows us to enjoy while having a bath inside it and without a step or people walking to cover the views.

We’ll explain briefly these pools’ working system and we’ll keep giving you reasons to have your own infinity pool.

Literally talking, an infinity pool is that one which creates an optical illusion in which it seems that the water reachs out the perpetual horizon.

Therefore, the investment required to this kind of complex and sophisticated architecture is justified.

It covers when we see on its results how the sea reflects, or the landscape , it directly blends in with that which is visually in front of us

And in the same water in we reflect ourselves and without any kind of visual residue that isn’t natural,

The results are simply amazing.

infinity pool

To understand better how this endless horizon effect is produced, this kind of swimming pool has in some of its copings an appoximate space of 2 centimetres which is used as a water gutter.

Once the water falls it accumulates and it pumps at the bottom, getting back clean to the stream current of the infinity pool,

Which makes it much cleaner than a traditional pool with Skimmer system, that would need double work.

infinity poolPicture: Gunitec

This kind of infinity pool construction is the favourite for landscapes’ lovers architects for the aesthetical reasons, but we can’t stop telling about the technical factor of these.

For making the result as spectacular as its own construction, these pools are built in areas in which the landscape is of great beauty an so while you swim or you rest , you relax watching the infinite.

Cliffs, mountain summits or clayey soils in front of the beach and that will imply that its orography will be complicated as well.

So we have to be very careful with hydraulic engineering calculation, any technical failure will be fatal.

As much for the slope of all of the walls and pools copings, as for the back water channel, and in respect with the space under the pool we can’t forget to leave enough so the filtration equipments, compensation container, etc., can work well.

To situate us, the space required which will have to be kept for equipments and other technical elements will correspond to 10% of the required surface for the construction.

An infinity pool is a very convenient element for luxury, exclusive construction, so its installation provides us a subtlety and elegance sensation which only luxury villas can have, as the ones we have build and we project in iLuxenio.

The infinity pool cause on us a great relax and wellness sensation.

That’s because, from above the pool’s walls, we don’t find any obstacle between the water and horizon.

And the fact that any abrupt movement moves the water towards the copings and draining gaskets make the creation of ‘infinity’pleasure and reflection moments.

infinity pool

The most remarkable advantages of infinity pools are:

  • The plain layer generated in the surface reflects everything which has in front of it.
  • So that, added to the lack of obstacles, becomes camouflaged with the environment.
  • Since it could be perfectly a decor element of a zen style villa.
  • It has more equitable distribution of chemicals to keep better the health and water quality (chlorines).
  • The cleanliness and filtration water system is more optimizable than the Skimmer traditional system,
  • As the water has no circulation limit, its surface’s dirty will keep trapped easier.
  • Therefore, it could be the last straw to make your luxury villa amazing.

Down below you have some of themost remarkable infinity pool of the world:

The longest infinity pool of the world:

It’s in Singapur, at Marina Bay Sands Hotel and it has a total lenght of 340 metres.

The most vertiginous infinity pool of the world:

It’s in Hong Kong at Indigo Hong Kong Island Hotel

It works as a skybar, a bar over the sky, and  its  floor is transparent.

Do you want a cocktail at a height seeing Hong Kong’s skyline?

Red pool in Thailand: It’s The Library Koh Samui villas complex,

The pool floor has a yellow, red and orange tiles mosaic.

The result of the illuminated pool:

In the night it’s a spectacle which you can see from any point of Chaweng coast.
