KARL LAGERFELD PRESENTS ITS FIRST LUXURY RESIDENTIAL PROJECT: KARL LAGERFELD VILLAS, MARBELLA
Five exclusive homes, perfectly integrated into the lush nature of Marbella’s Golden Mile.
KARL LAGERFELD VILLAS stems from Karl’s passion for architecture, interior design and constantly pushing the envelope of innovation. The lifestyle-oriented environment harmoniously incorporates the local landscape through elevated architecture and a focus on sustainability. Natural construction materials allow the spaces to merge seamlessly with their surroundings, blurring the artistic boundaries of the homes’ interior and exterior design. The majestic plot of land is strategically located between the Penibaetic mountains and the breathtaking Mediterranean coastline, offering its residents an oasis of tranquility.
Marbella’s The luxury KARL LAGERFELD VILLAS live in perfect harmony with the natural, geographical, and cultural identity that surrounds them. Reflecting Karl Lagerfeld’s own vision, the organic yet rational architecture bends and twists to offer breathtaking points of view, across a total area of nearly 10,000 square meters. Each bespoke residence is built to shimmer like a faceted gem as it reflects the environment, and the large-volume architecture offers panoramic views of the sea and the mountains from every angle.
The five residences range from 1045 to 1385 square meters in size and are spread across four levels: basement, ground floor, first floor and an accessible rooftop. The ground floor is intentionally lower to enhance the experience of stepping into a private garden that sits harmoniously within the beautiful landscape. In a decorative nod to Karl Lagerfeld, the mix of black-and-white terrazzo and wood flows seamlessly from the outdoors into the interior, bringing concepts of inclusiveness and dualism to the ground floor level. Each property features a generous private garden and sensational laguna pool linked to a private swimming pool. Each villa is accessible through a pedestrian entrance, reachable by a path dotted with pomegranate trees, in addition to a road-level, private driveway that leads directly into the basement with the parking lots.
In line with the signature KARL LAGERFELD aesthetic, the fit-out interventions are realized exclusively from brushed steel panels, black and white terrazzo marble, and dark wood. Playing with shadow, reflections, light, and color, the project uses a reflective, synthetic ceramic material finished with white gold dust. It is polished and semi-reflective and, when combined with the wood, offers an overall elevated look to the modern design. These materials take on a new value in this context and lend an abstract character to the interior. A lounge area features a custom bookcase — designed as a tribute to Karl’s love of books — made from recycled wood panels. The steel furniture and fixtures are welded and have no screw connections, further enhancing the objects’ abstract nature. Outside each villa, landscape architects have mixed colors and scents, inspired by the gardens Karl Lagerfeld loved.
