The art of interior design
Vista Lago Residences is a luxury development of 18 design-led sustainable villas overlooking Marbella, where the views towards Gibraltar and Africa are arguably among the best in the world. The setting is unique, right in the middle of the country club estate of Real de la Quinta, bordering a UNESCO biosphere reserve and just a 15-minute drive from Marbella.

George Bernard Shaw said that art is craft very well done. He could have been talking about interior design, because at the level these unique villas have been designed, they are all fine examples of the art of interior design.
All 18 villas in Vista Lago have been designed by UDesign Architect Studio, and the exceptional, transformative design that they have created has turned a development of luxury villas into a world class work of architectural & interior design.
All the villas have been designed and decorated differently. Not just tweaked to appear different at a glance, but very different, both inside and out, as if each were a separate entity totally independent of the next, which indeed they all are. If they have one thing in common, apart from each being exquisitely designed and built (and excusing the apparent contradiction in terms), it is the very fact that they are all different.
“Inside each villa,” Jason Harris, CEO and Creative Director of UDesign, says, “nothing stands in the way of the view. The windows slide into the wall, to bring the living area out into the terrace, becoming an extension of the house itself. Even closed, you see very little of the window frame. All are open plan, with no walls in the living spaces and columns reduced to the minimum. All the furniture in the villas has been chosen or designed exclusively for them, either by UDesign or by other top designers.”
Any guests staying in a Vista Lago villa will certainly come away thinking: I love that lamp, or that piece of furniture. I’ll go out and buy one like it. But they can’t, because what they see and admire is not available on the open market. What is used in these villas is an excellent demonstration of knowledge of the use of new materials and products that have rarely been used in such ways before, either in private residences or in development homes.
Interior design does not accurately describe how these interiors were designed, because that suggests a group of designers coming in once construction work is finished and designing the interiors. Nothing could be further from the truth. These interiors grew with the building itself, in some cases preceding it, with some rooms designed around a single piece of furniture that existed before the villa itself was designed.
Each of the 18 villas has been individually designed and clients can choose both the villa they want and the furniture and fittings in it, or in any of the other villas. There is a contemporary style to suit everyones’ taste, from bold and bright, to elegant and classical.
