Design trends flow like ebb and tide, forever evolving and refining.

Some of the earliest properties built in Marbella belonged to the school of modern architecture. In fact, with their sleek white lines and single-storey dimensions, these villas built as long ago as the 1950s and 1960s have stood the test of time and continue to look fresh today. In the years that followed, architects favoured a more traditional Mediterranean style that celebrated the rich variety of decorative detail in this region, though most homes continued to be white. This changed in the 1990s, when famous architect Melvin Villaroël introduced the earthy terracotta tones inspired by southern Morocco that would later become so popular on the Costa del Sol.
