These prestigious awards are divided into nine different regions throughout the world:  Africa, Arabia, Asia Pacific, Canada, Caribbean, Central & South America, Europe, the UK and the USA. Candidates first enter at national level, where they are judged in numerous property disciplines by an independent team of experienced professionals, the winners of each category qualifying for the subsequent International Awards.

Stuart Shield, formerly of Saatchi & Saatchi, publisher of the International Property and Travel magazine and founder of the International Property Awards in 1993, has this to say about the awards: “No others have more variety in taste, countries and backgrounds. Our awards are a bit like the Stirling Prize in architecture, but super-charged.”

Winners in all categories have the right to use the award logo, which is instantly recognized throughout the world of property development, in their marketing and sales material.    

Vista Lago Residences, BRIGHT’s entry for this year, is a completely new concept in residential development. Made up of eighteen villas that share a common design concept and built to the highest standards design and construction, they are all, nevertheless, different from one another. At Vista Lago, creativity and innovation at the highest level has turned a development of luxury villas into a unique work of architectural and interior design.

The development sits on an area of 6.5 hectares, within the much larger Real de La Quinta luxury estate located in the foothills of the Sierra de la Nieves mountains above Marbella. Intelligent positioning provides some of the best views in the world, over a lake, La Concha mountain, the Mediterranean coastline to Gibraltar and the continent of Africa beyond, from almost every room in each Vista Lago villa.

The architects responsible for the design of Vista Lago are UDesign, 2019 winners of the Best Architecture in Europe prize for their remarkable Villa Alcuzcuz, and they will collect the prize in this year’s Architecture Multiple Residence category.

UDesign, partnered with BRIGHT when it was set up in Spain, have vast experience in designing luxury houses and villas all over the world. Their style could be described as luxury minimalism, with ample use of the cantilever to provide open spaces both inside and outside. In Vista Lago, they have taken innovation and environmental sustainability to new levels of perfection, ensuring that all construction remains an integral part of the land surrounding it. Nothing gets in the way of the unique views each of these villas has to offer.

Michael Rodziewicz, CEO of BRIGHT, says: “The way we think with regard to property development is design, design, design. And this becomes the primary expression of our creativity, always aiming for a certain feeling, a framework for a lifestyle to be built upon. Designing from this perspective makes you look at the small details as well as the bigger picture.

“Everything we do,” he goes on, “has the homeowner in mind, our ultimate aim being to create a wonderful modern villa where the buyer has the freedom to express their own style, from choosing materials and detailing to having furniture and decoration made entirely to measure. That means every villa at Vista Lago Residences will be both a stunning property and a unique home, while having all the advantages of forming part of a gated community.”
