Press Release : Erik Vasbinder And Ton Van Den Bosch Of Lifestylehouse Discuss The Path To Excellence In The Design Of Modern Contemporary Homes

Headed by Erik Vasbinder & Ton van den Bosch, the team at Lifestylehouse in Marbella are at the cutting edge of the design and construction of contemporary modern villas & houses worldwide.

Combining a vision for attention to detail, from the engineering background of Erik Vasbinder, with the real estate expertise, gained from a successful career in property development, of Ton van den Bosch, they are supported by a team of engineers, designers and craftsmen at their head office in the Netherlands.

Their dream is to leverage the most advanced techniques available in construction, engineering and design to create and build worldwide modern homes that are beautiful from both the inside and outside, using only the highest quality materials.

As Erik Vasbinder states, “The sensation of being in one of our homes is similar to the feeling of quality and engineering perfection that you get when you sit in a high-end luxury car, such as a Porsche, Audi or Ferrari. Every part is engineered perfectly, every tiny detail a masterpiece of precision.”

Recognising that many builders were using traditional techniques to construct a modern villa or house, and that this method of building did not take advantage of the inherent engineering advantages that a modern home design can bring, they have designed and perfected a system for building homes using modular components that can be applied anywhere in the world.

Indeed with sales offices in Marbella, Spain and projects on the go in the south of Spain, Puerto Rico, Ibiza, Miami and Dubai they are rapidly building up a successful worldwide presence.

By taking advantage of proprietary highly-engineered steel corner structures, advanced concrete techniques and labour saving designs, Lifestylehouse are able to construct houses & villas that have absolutely no internal walls, are up to 80% glass and have expansive floors and dramatic overhangs that quite literally “float” above the ground level.

The advantages for the owner are immeasurable:

  • In the first place is the speed of construction of the building itself – all items can be pre-engineered and subsequently delivered on-site for assembly.
  • Timeless designs to choose from.
  • The owner is free to choose the finishings and installations to fit their particular needs. Since these are incorporated at the initial design stage and by taking advantage of the straight geometrical lines of the building, the plans of the construction can be adjusted so that materials such as flooring, wall tiles and doors can be fitted on-site with a minimum of adjustments – thus saving considerably on the labour times and therefore costs. These savings on labour are passed on to the owner who can benefit by investing in far higher quality finishing materials for the same end cost.
  • Design elements, such as the  internal and external insulation, can be manufactured as integral parts of the construction, rather than later on as add-ons.
  • All load-bearing structures are over-engineered in relation to the demands put on them, floors are constructed using advanced honeycomb designs and outside shutters are hurricane proof.
  • Installations such as air conditioning units, electrical systems and water softening devices can be sourced from the leading manufacturers and their incorporation can built into the original design.
  • A complete home can be finished, turnkey, within 7 to 10 months.

From a client satisfaction point of view, Ton van den Bosch likes to point out that “the entire home is pre-engineered prior to construction so that we at Lifestylehouse are able to provide the owner with a complete blueprint for his home before delivery, listing in detail the exact specifications of the house as well as comprehensive building plans.”

In fact the entire project is presented to the owner in the form of a book. This ensures that there is absolutely no margin for error when it comes to building the home – the owner can have complete confidence that every detail that he or she has requested is planned for.

Press Release : Lifestylehouse To Present At The 2015 Marbella Luxury Weekend Their Breathtaking Contemporary Modern Show Villa

For the upcoming Marbella Luxury Weekend 2015, Lifestylehouse announce the opening of their contemporary show villa, showcasing the latest in excellence in modern villa design & build in the Marbella area.

This outstanding contemporary modern villa is located in La Alqueria, to the south west of Marbella. Positioned on a stunning plot of 1230 sq. mts. in the hills, it has glorious views overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and the coast of North Africa.

The property has been designed to showcase the engineering excellence, attention to detail and beautiful build lines that characterize their entire range of houses and villas.

With a built area of 429 sq. mts., the villa is constructed using the proprietary modular design pioneered by Lifestylehouse, which forms the basis of all of their constructions.

Based on a series of highly engineered steel corner elements combined with advanced concrete techniques, the entire villa has no internal walls at all, with over 80% of external glass.

Structural integrity is superb, with all load bearing structural elements over-engineered in relation to the demands put on them, floors are constructed using an advanced honeycomb design and shutters are hurricane proof.

Both the ground floor and the first floor quite literally “float” above the ground level. In addition, the first floor terrace hangs, unsuspended, in a quite spectacular fashion over the ground floor.

In fact the entire first floor is a masterpiece of design layout. There are 3 bedrooms, all of which having stunning views through the expansive areas of glass and the master bedroom has 180 degree views.

The ground floor reflects the very best of contemporary modern villa design. The walls are fully glazed and there is a large and spacious living room area with an open plan kitchen, plus a guest toilet and lounge area / entertainment area.

The living area leads onto an impressive fully floating covered terrace area, constructed using the same design principles as the entire house. From here you can access a further uncovered deck and terraced area, featuring an oversized infinity pool.

The internal finishings and installations reflect one of the hallmarks of Lifestylehouse – the quality and engineering precision of the materials used. Because the villas and houses are engineered prior to construction, there are massive savings on the labour costs of building the homes. These savings are passed on to the owners for their benefit, allowing the use of only the best materials for the same end cost.

Lifestylehouse have pioneered a system that takes full advantage of the inherent design benefits of a modern home. By setting out a detailed blueprint for the homes prior to construction and by using pre-manufactured components that can be brought together onsite, the houses are not only beautiful from an architectural point of view, but also from an engineering point of view.

A further benefit is that the modular concept allows for a turnkey project to be completed with 7 to 10 months.

Prior to construction of the home, the owner is provided with the complete blueprint of the design, down to the smallest detail, in the form of a book. This ensures that the customer can be a confident in knowing exactly how the house or villa will look upon completion, as all of the building elements are then pre-manufactured in accordance with the blueprints.

The company is already building on their success and currently have projects on the go in Miami, Puerto Rico, Dubai and the South of Spain, with further worldwide projects planned.

For more information on building a modern villa or house in Marbella or elsewhere in the world, as well as details of their range of beautiful contemporary modern home designs, Erik Vasbinder & Ton van den Bosch will be available at the up and coming 2015 Marbella Luxury Weekend.

Designed to reflect the very best in Marbella, The Luxury Weekend in Marbella will be hosted between the 4th and the 7th of June 2015 in Puerto Banus.
