The Karl Lagerfeld Villas

Named after its creator, these magnificent villas are the result of the collaboration with the Spanish builder Sierra Blanca Estates.

The One Atelier instead took care of the branding and creative direction of the project.

Style cannot be lacking, but the technologies in favor of the environment make these magnificent residences truly unique.

All units have been designed to minimize carbon dioxide emissions.

The surrounding environment of all five villas will act as a true “green lung”.

Not only that: the great attention to detail did not prevent Karl Lagerfeld and his team from designing furnishings and environments with “traditional” eco-sustainable materials such as wood or the more modern and innovative ones.

Thanks to this careful selection, the isolation of Karl Lagerfeld Villas is guaranteed to the highest possible level.

The housing units have been designed to make the most of the sun exposure and enjoy natural light for most of the day, also thanks to the large designer windows.

The villas “breathe” naturally thanks to patios and green roofs.

Solar panels for energy saving and geothermal energy as regards mechanical systems are inevitable.

Still from a green perspective, the rainwater recovery tanks while a great combination of luxury and the environment is given by the latest generation of home automation.

A journalist ever since, I love turning the world's events into sentences and lines that can take readers "inside the news", leading them to explore the current happenings with me through my articles. My professional background has allowed me to gain insights into the encounter of two apparently incompatible worlds: luxury and sustainability. Guiding businesses in this direction as a communication manager and event organizer has made me aware that, now more than ever, it is by respecting ourselves and our planet's resources that we should start to create real value.
