Pininfarina has designed a new luxury residential complex for the Spanish developer Excem Real Estate. The complex is meant to become a unique architectural landmark for Estepona and the entire Costa del Sol.
Elegance, Technology and Well-being are the cornerstones that inspired Pininfarina in the design of this new residential development, converging luxury living and superior services with particular attention to the environment and personal health.
As the effects of climate change start to visibly affect living conditions globally, consumers are currently moving towards more sustainable lifestyle choices, reinventing their lives to minimize their environmental footprint. Indeed, this project includes a 20.000 m2 zone of luxuriant green surrounding the 3.000 m2 residential plot, thus contributing to the reduction of the carbon footprint.
The living experience within will be maximized by incorporating nature into the building and integrating wellness-related technologies, regulating lighting according to the circadian rhythm and guaranteeing indoor air quality control and water purification. The technology will also allow a seamless home control, multiroom audio, security, surveillance and beyond, providing real-time situational data, education on matters of health and wellness, and automation to optimize the indoor environment.
Among the main features of the building, the 'Atrium' will be an imposing 16m high-ceilinged lobby, with a unique view of both the sea and mountains that can be enjoyed from the exclusive terrace with an infinity pool, allowing residents to live the amazing experience of the Mediterranean sunsets.
Common areas will offer services similar to a luxury hotel while fostering interaction among residents. The 1.500m2 leisure activity spaces include a private club with a culinary area, a special purpose events room, a reading room, a movie theatre, a game room for children, and a multi-function and work area. In addition to this, there will be areas dedicated to relaxation activities like a SPA, a heated indoor pool, a climbing wall, and a gym.
This project, the first building designed by Pininfarina in Spain, includes the construction of 38 exclusive residential units sized from 250 to 550m2 with very low density and very high quality, in line with the vision that the Estepona City Hall has outlined to improve quality of life for its citizens. The residential units will be designed according to the BREEAM and WELL criteria, promoting health and well-being among the residents.
