The Experience of Living in our Homes must Be Unique
Our department of specialized in decoration, modern interior design and luxury interior design in Costa del Sol works towards a goal: The experience of living in a luxury villa must be unique.
Since the early stages of the construction process we focus on understanding the lifestyle and personality of the people who is going to live in the villa. We do this to implement a functional and customized decoration that adapts to their needs. And this modern interior design process covers up areas such as luxury interior design, landscaping, garden design modern decor and small details that make the difference.
Each of our villas are conceived on the principle that all the perspectives or disciplines, including interior design, play a very important role in the creative process.
Together with our clients, we have the objective to create a magical universe in which all those emotions and dreams flourish. We create shelters, sanctuaries of peace where you are immersed in the architectural strength as well as the calm and placidity brought by light, rhythm, colour, textures and smells that come with the interior design and decoration.
In ARK Architects we are lucky that all our projects are born thanks to the work led by the architects but they always work jointly and simultaneously with interior designers, landscapers and of course, the clients. In this way, every detail is taken care of to the millimetre and fully adapted to the needs of the future user.
The constant communication between all these people ensures a spectacular result that we can already visualise thanks to the impressive images generated by our 3D visualization team, images that we turn into reality when the house is built.
We seek to make the most of that energy and strength with which light fills the spaces, always accompanying it, but never taking away its importance. From there we move mostly between natural and noble materials, often sourced from the area, soft colour palettes, relaxed and serene textures, creating natural environments, the sea and above all light.
We try not to rely on that when designing. It is true that we live in an over-informed society and it is almost impossible not to be aware of everything that happens. We are aware of the latest developments in brands, materials, techniques, we go to international design fairs … but I think the ideal and really complicated thing is to go one step further, to go beyond, seeking the balance between originality and the timelessness, since we are dealing with residential designs and not the retail or hospitality sector, which tend to blindly follow trends.
For me a first impression is of extreme importance and it is of course your calling card, so I can certainly say that the entrance hall matters a lot. We will always have imposing elements, whether architectural such as stairs or atriums, or decorative features such as large lamps or pieces of art. Still, I do not think it should be the main character in the story. I think this will depend a lot on the client and the lifestyle of his or her family.
Manuel Ruiz Moriche
In some cases, the kitchen becomes the heart of the house, becoming the meeting point for its inhabitants and in others the garage is the crown jewel, becoming an authentic automobile museum and it is the one space that requires the most dedication in design and execution. Experience tells us that in the majority of cases, the exterior rooms are the undisputed stars.
Comfort, privacy, functionality and style merged to achieve a sensorial balance directly connected with architectural shapes.
ARK Interiors works to make customized, special and unique villas.
